MIAMI (AP) — Emilia has strengthened to a Category Two hurricane in the Pacific far off the coast of Mexico but is not posing a threat to land.
The hurricane's maximum sustained winds Monday were near 100 mph (160 kph) with additional strengthening expected.
Emilia is centered about 710 miles (1,145 kilometers) south of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California and is moving west-northwest at 12 mph (19 kph).
Meanwhile, farther west over the Pacific, Hurricane Daniel had maximum sustained winds near 85 mph (140 kph). The hurricane is expected to weaken slowly during the next 48 hours and was moving west at 15 mph (24 kph).
