MEXICO CITY (AP) — Newly formed Hurricane Raymond is swirling toward Mexico's southern Pacific coast, an area already devastated by rains and mudslides from Tropical Storm Manuel last month.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center predicts Raymond will take a sharp westward turn and head out to sea before reaching land, but warns the Category 1 storm still might get as close as 50 miles, bringing the threat of heavy and possibly dangerous rains.
In a region where 10,000 people are still living away from their homes one month after Manuel caused widespread flooding and left landslide risks, officials are hurrying to get emergency teams in place and weighing possible further evacuations.
Mexican authorities are pinning their hopes on a cold front moving from the north that could help force Raymond to turn away from the coast.
Forecasters say Raymond is expected to slowly approach the coast late Monday or Tuesday but then begin to meander.
