A man waits for help sitting in his damaged house after the passage of Hurricane Alex in Bagdad beach, in Matamoros, Tamaulipas State, on July 1, 2010. 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.
