"My Administration is closely monitoring Hurricane Douglas off Hawaii & Hurricane Hanna, which has now made landfall in Texas", President Donald Trump tweeted.

Even while the center is in Mexico, rain showers will be ongoing.

Hanna still posed a threat, the hurricane center said, noting it could dump upward of 18 inches (45 cm) of rain in the area through Monday. Hanna's winds were expected to weaken on July 25 night, but the storm's real threat remained heavy rainfall.

South Texas was braced for flooding on Sunday after Hanna roared ashore as a hurricane the day before, bringing rain and storm surge to a part of the country trying to cope with a spike in cases of the coronavirus.

The National Hurricane Center on Monday morning continued to track the next potential tropical storm in the Atlantic.

Damage appeared limited in the immediate aftermath of Hanna's arrival on Padre Island, a 110-mile-long barrier island off the Texas coast, around 5:00 pm (2200 GMT) Saturday.

It unloaded more than 12 inches of rain on parts of South Texas and northeastern Mexico. Urging extreme caution, Governor Abbott warned residents across the state not to forget about the virus because of the storm. Authorities will have to contend with sheltering and evacuating people while also maintaining social distancing protocols and other pandemic restrictions. But not this time, he said.

Earlier Sunday, Hurricane Hanna was downgraded to a tropical storm after lashing coronavirus-hit Texas.
