(Newser) – Flood warnings have been issued as Tropical Storm Hermine today made landfall in northeastern Mexico, where heavy rains triggered landslides that cut off small communities and destroyed dozens of dwellings, the AP reports. The storm crossed the Rio Grande and roared into the border region, reeling from Hurricane Alex earlier this summer, where it was to dump up to a foot of rain in places. It's expected to head north through Oklahoma and Kansas.
