(Reuters) - Tropical Storm Ingrid, located about 50 miles east of Veracruz, is drenching portions of eastern Mexico, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said in its latest bulletin on Friday.

Ingrid is packing maximum sustained winds near 45 miles per hour (75 km per hour), with some strengthening possible during the next 48 hours, the agency said.

On the forecast track, Ingrid will be moving very close to the coast of Mexico during the next couple of days, it said.
