Mexico cancels warnings as Tropical Storm Sandra weakens in Pacific

After reports that the village of Rebalse, Jalisco state, Mexico was flooded, a convoy of soldiers trying to reach the site is forced to turn back by muddy roads outside Cihuatlan on Sunday, Oct. 25, 2015. The soldiers were later able to access the village on another badly damaged road as they drove past devastated banana fields.

Mexico has cancelled tropical storm warnings as Tropical Storm Sandra is weakening rapidly.

The storm's maximum sustained winds decreased early Saturday to 40 mph (65 kph).

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Sandra is forecast to become a remnant low later Saturday or early Sunday.

Sandra is about 115 miles (180 kms) south of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and is moving north at 2 mph (4 kph).

The storm is still expected to produce 2 to 4 inches of rain in parts of Mexico, and strong winds are expected in Las Islas Marias.
