Hurricane Lane weakened to a tropical depression Sunday after making landfall Saturday on Mexico's Pacific Coast.

Power was out and streets were flooded in the resort of Mazatlan. The storm was a Category 3 hurricane when it made landfall. Central Mexico could get six additional inches of rain, forecasters warned.

On Friday, Lane battered coastal towns, causing a landslide in Acapulco that killed one person. Hundreds of people were forced to evacuate from the port city of Lazaro Cardenas.

Lane closely follows Hurricane John, which lashed the same region two weeks ago.
