MIAMI >> Forecasters say Hurricane Kenneth is weakening rapidly and has been downgraded to a Category 1 storm in the eastern Pacific.

 

There is no threat to land from what had been the strongest late-season hurricane in that area on record when it earlier reached Category 4 status.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Wednesday that Kenneth has maximum sustained winds near 90 mph. The storm was centered about 860 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California, Mexico.

It is moving west at 9 mph.

Kenneth is expected to weaken further and could be downgraded to a tropical storm by Thursday. There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

The eastern Pacific hurricane season ends Nov. 30.
