The government of Mexico has discontinued all warnings for Franklin, which is located about 20 miles (35 kms) north-northwest of Mexico City, Mexico with maximum sustained winds now reduced to 30 miles per hour (45 km/h), the Miami-based weather forecaster said.

Franklin weakened to a tropical storm early Thursday after developing into a Category 1 hurricane on Wednesday.
