Barry comes ashore neat Veracruz

Tropical Storm Barry made landfall at about 9 a.m. Thursday just north of Veracruz, Mexico.

Its maximum sustained winds were holding at 45 mph, heading west -- away from the U.S. -- at about 5 mph.

Barry is expected to weaken as the day goes on and become a "remnant low" pressure system by late tonight or Friday.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center say the storm could dump up to 10 inches of rain in some areas, causing flash floods and mudslides in the mountains of central Mexico.
