Ports were closed, school classes were suspended and hundreds of people were evacuated along Mexico's southern Pacific coast on Monday as a major hurricane loomed over a region still recovering from record flooding a few weeks ago

Raymond, a category three hurricane, was stationary with winds blowing up to 125 miles per hour on Monday, around 105 miles offshore. Forecasters said it could move closer to the coast before heading out to sea.

The hurricane was already dumping steady rain on coastal areas including Ixtapa and Acapulco, where storms wrecked homes, roads and cars and stranded tourists last month.
