VERACRUZ, Mexico (Reuters) - Karl hit Mexico's central Gulf Coast Friday, threatening to cause flash floods and mudslides, but the hurricane weakened as it moved inland and became a tropical storm.

The storm appeared to have spared Mexican oil operations from major damage after sweeping through the Bay of Campeche, where Mexico produces more than two-thirds of its 2.55 million barrels per day of crude output.
