Pamela causes minor flooding in Sinaloa

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Tropical Storm Pamela moved inland over Mexico’s northwest region Wednesday after slamming into the coast just north of Mazatlan earlier in the day as a hurricane.

Pamela made landfall 40 miles (65 kms) north of the port city of Mazatlan, which is also a resort for Mexican tourists.

Civil defense officials in the northern state of Sinaloa said Pamela’s wind and rains caused minor flooding but did little damage in the city.
