Genevieve becomes hurricane far off Mexico's Pacific coast

Posted: Updated:

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Tropical Storm Genevieve has strengthened into a hurricane far off Mexico's Pacific coast, and forecasters say it is expected to stay out at sea.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami says Genevieve was 585 miles (945 kilometers) southwest of Cabo San Lucas in Baja California and was moving west-northwest at about 12 mph (19 kph) with winds clocked at 75 mph (120 kph).

Forecasters say the storm will likely reach its peak intensity Friday and then start to weaken by Saturday. Genevieve is the fourth Pacific hurricane of the season.
