Ac­tive hur­ri­cane sea­son con­tin­ues on both coasts

Las Vegas Review-Journal (Sunday) - - WORLD -

Hur­ri­cane sea­son roared on Satur­day as Jose threat­ened heavy surf along the U.S. East Coast, Trop­i­cal Storm Norma neared Mex­ico’s re­sort-stud­ded Baja Cal­i­for­nia Penin­sula, and Trop­i­cal Storm Maria formed in the At­lantic Ocean and was ex­pected to strengthen into a hur­ri­cane, tak­ing aim at some al­ready­bat­tered Caribbean is­lands.

Mean­while, Trop­i­cal Storm Lee formed in the At­lantic and Trop­i­cal Storm Otis in the Pa­cific. Nei­ther threat­ened land.

A trop­i­cal storm warn­ing was in ef­fect for the south­ern tip of Mex­ico’s Baja Cal­i­for­nia Penin­sula be­cause of Norma, which weak­ened into a trop­i­cal storm on Satur­day, with max­i­mum sus­tained winds of 65 mph, ac­cord­ing to the U.S. Na­tional Hur­ri­cane Cen­ter.

The Baja Cal­i­for­nia Sur gov­ern­ment read­ied storm shel­ters and can­celed classes for Mon­day as well as a planned mil­i­tary pa­rade in the state cap­i­tal, La Paz, amid Mex­i­can In­de­pen­dence Day cel­e­bra­tions.
