rumor has it that it may turn into a hurricane; the Washington Post says:
The eastern Pacific’s second named storm, Beatriz, has strengthened to near hurricane strength this afternoon. With maximum sustained winds of 70 mph, Beatriz need only add four mph to reach hurricane status. The tropical storm, 90 miles southwest of Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico is moving north-northeast at 8 mph. Hurricane warnings have been posted from Zihuatenejo to Cabo Corrientes along the Mexican coast, and tropical storms warnings are in effect from Tecpan de Galeana westward to east of Zihuatanejo. Cabo Corrientes is the cape upon which the resort city Puerto Vallarta sits.
In addition to the rain, storm surge flooding along with “large and destructive” waves are possible within the hurricane warning area.
Although the storm’s strongest winds of potentially hurricane force are likely to remain offshore, the probability of at least tropical storm force winds of 39 mph or higher ranges from 50-90 percent in the warned area.
