Hurricane Agatha churns near Mexico’s Oaxaca state, devastating residents

Hurricane Agatha plowed into beach resorts and residential homes on Mexico's southern Pacific coast on Monday, bringing torrential rains and the threat of flooding as the first named storm in the eastern Pacific this year. The U.S. National Hurricane Centre (NHC) said Agatha is the strongest hurricane to make landfall during the month of May along Mexico's Pacific coast since records began in 1949.
