MIAMI (AP) — Tropical Storm Lorena is moving parallel to Mexico’s Pacific coast as it approaches Baja California.
The storm had maximum sustained winds early Friday near 40 mph (65 kph) with little change in strength expected until landfall, which is expected either late Friday or on Saturday in southern Baja California. After making landfall, the U.S. National Hurricane Center says Lorena should weaken until dissipating on Sunday or Monday.
A tropical storm warning is in effect for southern Baja California from north of Agua Blanca to Santa Fe.
The storm is centered about 95 miles (155 kilometers) southeast of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and is moving northwest near 14 mph (22 kph).
