Alex, the first hurricane of the Atlantic season, weakened across northeast Mexico as it neared high mountains on Thursday, after disrupting oil clean-up operations in the Gulf of Mexico. Alex was downgraded to a tropical storm after roaring ashore late Wednesday as a Category Two hurricane slightly south of the eastern US-Mexico border.
