Hurricane Alex Weakens, Becomes Storm Over Mexico, Agency Says

July 1 (Bloomberg) -- Hurricane Alex was downgraded to a tropical storm after its maximum sustained wind speed slowed to 70 miles per hour from 80 mph and it came ashore from the Gulf of Mexico, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said today in an advisory on its website.

Alex is expected to dissipate during the next 24 to 36 hours, the data agency said. The earliest Atlantic hurricane since 1995 was about 55 miles west of Ciudad Victoria, Mexico, the center said just before 7 a.m. Central Time. The storm, earlier a Category 2 system with winds reaching 100 mph, was heading west at 12 mph and will continue to move inland today, according to the forecast.
