Agatha, the first hurricane of the season in the Pacific, made landfall in southern Mexico on Monday with strong winds and heavy rain.

Mexican authorities worked until Monday night and early Tuesday morning to clear landslide-blocked roads on the country’s southern coast.

Heavy rains caused landslides and rockslides on two highways in Oaxaca, blocking access to part of the state.

The epicenter was reported below the Pacific Ocean floor, however; no tsunami alert was issued.
