Tropical Storm Bret Is Downgraded To Tropical Depression

Tropical Storm Bret is losing steam over Mexico.

The National Hurricane Center has downgraded it to a tropical depression, after it moved inland from the Gulf of Mexico.

Still, forecasters say it could dump up to ten inches of rain on mountainous areas.

Bret's strongest winds are about 35 miles an hour. But they're expected to weaken as the storm moves over rugged terrain.

Mexican officials have suggested people in low-lying areas leave their homes because of possible flooding.

Bret, the second storm of the hurricane season, is located more than 300 miles south of the Texas border.
