Atlantic storm morphs into Javier

Could bring rain to the southwestern U.S.

August 7, 2016

The remnants of Hurricane Earl which crossed Mexico last week have formed into Tropical Storm Javier just off the Pacific coast of Mexico.

Javier could bring rain to the parched US southwest by the end of the week but for now is prompting tropical storm warnings north along the Mexican coast and Baja California.

At least six people were killed from mudslides when Earl plowed into Veracruz.

It was the first tropical storm to hit the eastern Mexican coast since Ernesto in 2012.
