Tropical Storm Larry was hitting southern Mexico with flooding rains as the storm stayed put in the southern Gulf of Mexico Saturday.

Forecasters said, for Saturday, Larry did not show much sign of movement. The storm will begin to move south over the next two days. But dangerous rain will continue to trouble southeastern Mexico.

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) is one of several faith-based groups that have responded to needs in Mexico in the past. PDA, through its close ties to the National Presbyterian Church of Mexico, has worked with partner churches to promote both disaster preparedness and human rights.

Meanwhile, another storm, Hurricane Kate, was churning in the Atlantic. The third major hurricane of the Atlantic season, Kate had sustained winds Saturday of 115 mph.

That hurricane will stay well away from Bermuda, forecasters said, and may even approach eastern Newfoundland as it moves into the north Atlantic.
