Hurricane Delta, which has been battering Mexico’s Pacific coast for several days, has made landfall near Muisne, on Mexico’s southern tip, bringing heavy rain and storm surge, but with no direct damage to the city.

After crossing a line just north of the so-called “Tortilla Coast” peninsula, Delta started weakening late Wednesday afternoon, even as it came ashore for a second time at about 9 p.m. There was some localized flooding, but it had mostly dissipated.

Warning at Delta as “Hurricane Warning” is in effect. 100’s of mm of rain is forecast over next 3 days. Take care if driving in the area. #DriftBait pic.twitter.com/wt3UD0DgHt — NWS San Diego (@NWSSanDiego) October 10, 2018

The storm had at one point formed into a Category 3 storm, as it moved north at about 23 miles per hour before colliding with two very powerful earthquakes in Mexico, destroying at least 25,000 buildings and killing at least 220 people in Chiapas and Oaxaca states.

The ocean showed great balance between the storm and the weather system; temperatures at the ocean surface would be in the 90s for several days, then subside to 70s for several days, according to weather.com, even as the rains started falling.
