MIAMI » Tropical Storm Manuel has prompted the government of Mexico to issue warnings for the Pacific coast of the country from Acapulco to Punta San Telmo.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Fla., say Manuel had sustained winds this afternoon of 40 mph and the center was located about 150 miles south-southwest of Zihuatanejo. It was moving west slowly and should be near the coast of southwestern Mexico by late Saturday or early Sunday.

The storm is expected to produce 10 to 15 inches of rain over parts of the Mexican states of Oaxaca and Guerrero. Tropical storm conditions are expected to begin in the warning area by midday Saturday.

Life-threatening flash floods and mudslides are likely.
