Dean Heads Towards Mexico

Hurricane Dean is aiming for the Mexican mainland after sweeping across the Yucatan Peninsula.

Its 165-mile-per-hour winds flattened homes in Mayan villages. The full extent of the damage remains unknown because of poor communications and impassable roads.
It’s back over water again, but is now a category one storm.

It’s headed toward the heart of Mexico’s oil industry in the lower Gulf of Mexico. As a precaution the country’s only nuclear plant has been shut down.

Dean is expected to make landfall on Aug. 22, 2007, about halfway between Tampico and Veracruz.
