ACAPULCO, Mexico (AP) - Forecasters are expecting Tropical Storm Andres to grow into the Pacific season's first hurricane Tuesday.
The say it will likely deal a glancing blow to southwestern
Mexico before churning its way up the coast.
Mexico has issued a hurricane warning for the Pacific coast from just south of Manzanillo north to near Puerto Vallarta. To the
south, officials in Acapulco have prepared 120 shelters and are
warning residents to stay indoors, especially some 15,000 people in
zones most at risk for flooding.
At last report, the U.S. National Hurricane Center put Andres' center about 160 southeast of Manzanillo with maximum sustained winds near 65 mph with higher gusts.
