Tropical Storm Bonnie was upgraded to a Category 1 hurricane on Sunday as it swept into Mexico after killing three people in El Salvador and Nicaragua, the US National Hurricane Center said.

The hurricane, the third of the season off the Mexican coast, is carrying maximum sustained winds of 80 miles per hour “with higher gusts,” the NHC said, citing satellite imagery.

“Bonnie’s core is expected to remain south of, but move parallel to, the coasts of southern and southwestern Mexico over the next few days,” the center said in its latest advisory.

Before moving toward Mexico, the storm caused property damage in the Central American countries of El Salvador and Nicaragua, cutting down trees and flooding rivers, roads and hospitals.

A 24-year-old woman died in El Salvador, emergency services said, while in Nicaragua the army said a 40-year-old man was swept away trying to cross a river and a 38-year-old man was caught trying to pick up passengers rescue, died from a bus.

Rescuers in El Salvador were still searching for a missing man as of Sunday night and search efforts will resume on Monday, the country’s civil defense agency said.

“Bonnie has caused very heavy rains and thunderstorms in the coastal area, in the volcanic mountains and in the greater San Salvador area, with strong gusty winds and hail in some areas,” the environment ministry said.

El Salvador President Nayib Bukele said all classes would be suspended on Monday.

Bonnie, who landed in Nicaragua overnight from Friday to Saturday, will flood southern Mexico with heavy rain, the NHC said.

The waves caused by the hurricane are said to be “causing life-threatening surf and current conditions,” his report said.
