Hurricane Orlene made landfall on Mexico’s Pacific coast near the tourist town of Mazatlan on Monday before quickly weakening over western Mexico.

Electrical cables swayed and sent off showers of sparks in some towns which are about 40 miles south of Mazatlan, close to where the hurricane hit.

Orlene lost some strength after roaring over the Islas Maria, a former prison colony being developed as a tourist draw.  The main island is sparsely populated mainly by government employees and most buildings there are made of brick or concrete.

Authorities did not immediately report any damage, but along the coast, they suspended classes, closed seaports and set up shelters.
