Tropical Storm Fernand goes ashore in southwest Gulf of Mexico

Fernand, the sixth tropical storm of the 2013 hurricane season, made landfall in Mexico early Monday.

Fernand only briefly reached tropical storm status – sustained winds of at least 39 mph – as it moved west-northwest in the Gulf before hitting Mexico.

The storm had maximum winds of 50 mph late Sunday, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Fernand brought flooding, heavy rains and strong winds to Mexico's coast, and tropical storm warnings were issued for Veracruz north to Barra de Nautla.

No other tropical storms are expected in the next 48 hours in the Gulf, the Caribbean Sea or the Atlantic Ocean.
