Hurricane Hernan now tropical storm in Pacific

Posted: Updated:

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Hurricane Hernan has weakened to a tropical storm far out in the Pacific.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami says Hernan's winds have fallen to about 70 mph (110 kph) and the storm is expected to continue weakening as it moves westward and even farther out to sea.

By Monday afternoon, Hernan was located about 1,400 miles (2,250 kilometers) west of the tip of the Baja California peninsula. It was moving west-southwest.

Storms are classified as hurricanes when their winds reach 74 mph (119 kph) or more.
