NUEVO LAREDO, Mexico (AP) - Forecasters say Tropical Storm Hermine made landfall in extreme northeastern Mexico on Monday night.

Authorities had been urging people along Mexico's northern Gulf coast to move to shelters as Tropical Storm Hermine gained strength. Meanwhile, officials in southern Texas are distributing sandbags and warning of possible flash flooding.
The National Hurricane Center says Hermine could bring up to a foot of rain in places.
Twelve people died in flooding in the same area in June after the arrival of Hurricane Alex.
