(Newser) – Hurricane Alex has hit northeastern Mexico, walloping the nation's Gulf coast with winds up to 100 miles per hour and spawning tornadoes in Texas. Thousands of people have been evacuated on both sides of the border, AP reports. The storm is weakening as it moves inland, but authorities warn that the risk of tornadoes and flash floods will remain for up to 2 days.
