Hurricane Bonnie strengthened and moved roughly parallel to Mexico’s 太平洋 coast Monday, after crossing over 中美洲 from the 加勒比海 and dropping heavy rain and contributing to two deaths.

Forecasters said they expected the hurricane to stay well out to sea and pose no threat to land as it moved generally westward off the coast of southern 墨西哥.

Bonnie had maximum sustained winds of 100 时速 (155 公里/小时) Monday afternoon, 美国. National Hurricane Center said. It was centered 210 英里 (335 公里) south of Acapulco, 墨西哥, and moving to the west at 17 时速 (28 公里/小时).

But the storm left heavy flooding after crossing sodden Nicaragua over the weekend where it made landfall on the country’s Caribbean coast late Friday.

Two people were killed in separate events related to flooding, Nicaragua’s army said in a statement. It said 40-year-old Alberto Flores Landero died trying to cross the swollen Mati river in Siuna in Nicaragua’s northeast and Juan Carlos Alemán, 38, died trying to help passengers from a bus that fell into the Ali Bethel river in the same area.

The Family Ministry said it had distributed mattresses to families displaced by flooding in Rama, west of Bluefields. Images from the area showed water up to rooflines and people navigating streets in boats.
