MIAMI (AP) -  The National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Imelda has made landfall near Freeport, Texas.  Forecasters expect heavy rainfall and potential flash flooding as the storm moves inland.
The hurricane center in Miami said Tuesday that Imelda had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph) and was moving north at 7 mph (11 kph).
Meanwhile, Hurricane Humberto is posing a stronger threat to Bermuda, while a new storm in the Pacific could affect Mexico.
Humberto was still more than 500 miles (800 kilometers) from the island on Tuesday, with top sustained winds of 100 mph (155 kmh). Forecasters said Bermuda could get tropical storm force winds Wednesday afternoon.
Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Lorena formed off Mexico's Pacific Coast, where forecasters predicted heavy rains and flooding by Thursday, likely without reaching hurricane force.
Lorena had top winds of 40 mph (65 kph) Tuesday and was centered about 295 miles (475 kilometers) south-southeast of Zihuatanejo, moving northwest at 15 mph (24 kph).
Tropical Depression Ten also formed in the Atlantic, and could become a hurricane Friday as it nears the outermost Caribbean islands.
