MIAMI (AP) — Tropical Storm Raymond is maintaining its strength as it moves away from Mexico’s Pacific coast.
At its peak, Raymond was a Category 3 hurricane that threatened to collide with the Mexican coast, a region devastated by a storm last month. But Raymond spun in place offshore for more than a day before heading out to sea Wednesday.
Raymond’s maximum sustained winds early Thursday are near 45 mph. The storm is centered about 305 miles south-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, and is moving west near 8 mph.
Meanwhile in the Atlantic, Tropical Depression Lorenzo is expected to weaken and become a remnant low. Lorenzo’s maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph. The depression is centered about 1,020 miles east of Bermuda.
