Katia downgraded to tropical storm as it moves into Mexico

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says that Tropical Storm Katia is starting to stall over Mexico's Sierra Madre mountains. Still, the center predicted the storm could bring 3 to 6 inches of additional rain to a region with a history of flooding and deadly mudslides.

The country has been dealing with the arrival of the Gulf coast hurricane while parts of it are already in ruins following a magnitude 8.1 natural disaster.

The processor is being dubbed as Kirin 970 AI and it will be equipped on Huawei's upcoming Mate 10 . The Kirin 970 has a dual image signal processor, which should focus faster and be more responsive.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said that as a depression, Katia was blowing maximum sustained winds of almost 35 miles (56 km) per hour and should dissipate over the mountains of central eastern Mexico later on Saturday.

Luis Felipe Puente, head of Mexico's national emergency services, said this week that Katia has "worrying characteristics" because it is very slow-moving and could dump a lot of rain on areas that have been saturated in recent weeks. Along those parts of the coast, Katia's storm surge - the quick rise in water caused by a hurricane's strong winds - could raise water levels as much as 8 feet above normal tides. Katia made landfall Friday night as a hurricane. A hurricane warning means that it's expected to hit about 12-24 hours, the NHC noted in its update.
