Franklin has weakened to a tropical storm as it moves farther inland over eastern Mexico.
The storm made landfall early Thursday as a Category 1 hurricane, the first of the Atlantic hurricane season.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Franklin’s maximum sustained winds later decreased to near 113 km/h with additional weakening expected.
The storm is expected to dissipate late Thursday or early Friday. Franklin is centered about 121 kilometres south of Tuxpan, Mexico, and is moving a little south of west near 24 km/h.
