At least two people died in the aftermath of Hurricane Katia in Mexico, local authorities report.

Katia, which had been swirling in the Gulf of Mexico for days, made landfall north of Tecolutla, the National Hurricane Center said.

Katia came with its turmoil late Friday and early Saturday as the death toll from the earthquake during the week rose to 64.

The hurricane brought strong winds up to 75mph (120kph) and heavy rain.

The two people were killed in a mudslide in the wake of the hurricane, Veracruz Governor, Miguel Angel Yunes said.

The mountainous region where the storm has been dumping rain has a history of deadly floods and slides.
