Cristina Comes to An End in Eastern Pacific


It lasted six days, but the third named Tropical System of the 2014 Eastern Pacific season is officially no more.

Forecasters say Tropical Storm Cristina has formed off the southwestern coast of Mexico and is expected to blow into a hurricane later in the week.

It lasted six days, but the third named Tropical System of the 2014 Eastern Pacific season is officially no more.

The final advisory on Cristina was issued Sunday afternoon, as the storm--which had been losing strength all weekend--officially lost tropical characteristics over 300 miles to the south of Baja California.

The storm was very powerful at one point, with winds up to 145 miles per hour.

But, thankfully, Cristina did not directly hit any major land masses. The next name in line for the 2014 season in the Eastern Pacific would be Douglas, followed by Elida and Fausto.
