Forecasters have predicted damaging winds, drenching rains and a unsafe storm surge from the Gulf of Mexico.

Hurricane Katia, the sixth hurricane of the 2017 season, is expected to make landfall in Mexico early Saturday morning.

The storm has maximum sustained winds of 130 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center. Areas of Mexico to the north of Cabo Rojo and to the south of Laguna Verde are under a tropical-storm warning.

The natural disaster, the strongest to strike Mexico in more than 80 years, killed at least 61 people. At Category 1 hurricane it had winds of 75 miles per hour.

Officials in Veracruz say Katia could cause landslides and flooding. At the same time, Irma strengthened back into a Category 5 storm Friday night, after weakening to a Category 4 earlier in the day.

Mexico's national emergency services said this week that Katia was worrying because it is very slow-moving and could dump a lot of rain on areas that have been saturated in recent weeks.
