Hurricane INGRID strengthens pounding Mexico’s Gulf coast

Thousands of people in Veracruz state on Mexico’s Gulf coast have sought emergency shelters as Hurricane INGRID strengthened Saturday night pounding central and eastern Mexico with heavy rain.

INGRID is expected to make landfall north of Tampico, Mexico on Monday.
