    Understanding a sentence Hurricane Patricia

    In my last posts I asked about understanding tenses.

    I would like to know if present simple can be use when we talk about future.
    What is the meaning of "as it brings"? here:

    Mexico's president has warned that Hurricane Patricia still poses a threat of floods and landslides as it brings heavy rain to parts of the country.

    As it brings- The heavy rain is happening now and can create floods and landslides ?
    or
    As it brings - we need to except for heavy rain, the heavy rain maybe will bring - floods and landslides?

    Thanks.

    As it brings- We need to except expect for heavy rain , the heavy rain maybe will which may bring floods and cause landslides?

    Thanks.
    Your first interpretation is correct.
