Henriette Strengthens Into Hurricane Off Mexico's West Coast

Sept. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Hurricane Henriette formed off Mexico's west coast, and is predicted to hit the tip of Baja California later today.

After tracking parallel to the Mexican coast as a tropical storm over the past four days, Henriette's winds strengthened to about 120 kilometers an hour (75 mph), the U.S. National Hurricane Center said in an advisory on its Web site at about 3 a.m. La Paz, Baja California, time. The system was 185 km south- southeast of the southern tip of the peninsula, and heading north-northwest at 13 kph.
