Tropical Storm Beatriz hit Mexico's southwestern coast last Thursday night with heavy rain and sustained winds of about 45 miles per hour.

The heavy rain was far more damaging than the wind. Soaking and unrelenting rain caused a number of landslides that killed at least three people. Two others are missing.

The narrowest point between the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, a bridge collapsed. The army arrived quickly to try and restore it.

When Beatriz made landfall, the storm weakened considerably.
