Weakening Raymond soaks southwestern Mexico, no major damage

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). STORY: More heavy rain spawned by Hurricane Raymond as it churns over the Pacific fell on southwestern Mexico on Tuesday, soaking areas hit by record flooding last month, but forecasters said the storm was weakening and appeared unlikely to reach land. Coastal rains caused minor mudslides in the hills behind Acapulco, but there were no reports of significant damage. The U.S. National Hurricane Center downgraded Raymond one notch to category 2 in the five-step hurricane intensity scale. A make-shift bridge on the edge of Coyuca de Benitez, a town about 80km north of Acapulco, could be overrun with water and closed if heavy rains resume, the local head of public safety said on Tuesday. A potential closure would disrupt transport of food and other supplies all across Mexico's Pacific coast, from Acapulco north to the beach resort of Zihuatanejo and beyond. Raymond, located about 85 miles off the coast of Guerrero state
