MIAMI (AP) — Forecasters say Tropical Storm Henriette is almost to hurricane strength out in the Pacific Ocean, far from land.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami said late Monday that Henriette was about 1,470 miles (2,365 kilometers) west-southwest of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California peninsula.
It has maximum sustained winds of 70 mph (110 kph) and is moving west.
Meanwhile, Tropical Depression Gil was moving to the west, about 1,080 miles (1,735 kilometers) east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii.
No watches or warnings are in effect for either storm.
