MEXICO CITY (AP) - Tropical Storm Dolly drenched Mexico's Gulf coast before moving inland over mountains and dissipating on Wednesday.
In the final advisory for the system, the National Hurricane Center said the remnants of Dolly were centered about 90 miles west-southwest of Tampico, with sustained winds of 30 mph. It was moving to the west at 8 mph.
The storm collapsed a street and house in the port city of Veracruz and prompted hundreds of schools to close in the states of Veracruz and Tamaulipas. Forecasters said the storm's remnants will bring 5 to 10 inches of rain, potentially leading to life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.
Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Norbert was whirling along Mexico's Pacific coast with maximum sustained winds of 70 mph, and it was expected to grow into a hurricane before brushing past the Los Cabos resorts at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula on Thursday.
Norbert was centered about 240 miles south of Los Cabos and it was moving west at 7 mph on Wednesday morning. Mexico's National Meteorological Service warned it could bring intense rains to a broad swath of western and central Mexico.
