Blanca weakens to tropical depression in Pacific

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Tropical Storm Blanca was downgraded to a tropical depression off Mexico's Pacific Coast and continued to weaken further on Wednesday.

Blanca was located about 720 miles (1,160 kilometers) west-southwest of the tip of the Baja California Peninsula, and was heading west-northwest at 10 mph (16 kph).

The storm had maximum sustained winds near 30 mph (45 kph).
