SAN RAFAEL, Mexico (AP) -- Three deaths are reported in Mexico, where Hurricane Lorenzo hit that country's Gulf coast today.
A woman and two children were killed when a saturated hillside in central Mexico collapsed after the storm brought steady rain.
Lorenzo quickly weakened to a tropical depression as it charged inland, but still managed to fling roofs and billboards through the air.
The storm battered a coastline populated with small fishing villages and beach hotels, knocking over electrical poles. It also left thousands in shelters scattered throughout the region.
