Tropical Storm Hanna drenches South Texas amid virus crisis

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — A day after roaring ashore as a hurricane, Hanna is lashing the Texas Gulf Coast with high winds and drenching rains that destroyed boats, flooded streets and knocked out power across a region already reeling from a surge in coronavirus cases. Downgraded to a tropical storm, Hanna is hovering over the U.S.-Mexico border with winds near 50 mph (85 kph). It is expected to unload as much as 18 inches of rain (45 centimetres) on parts of South Texas and northeastern Mexico.
