CABO SAN LU­CAS, Mex­ico — Hur­ri­cane New­ton soaked Mex­ico’s western Pa­cific coast with heavy rain Mon­day and took aim at Baja Cal­i­for­nia’s twin re­sorts of Los Ca­bos, where res­i­dents nailed ply­wood over win­dows and pulled in fish­ing boats while pre­par­ing for a pos­si­ble di­rect hit two years af­ter be­ing slammed by a ma­jor storm. New­ton’s max­i­mum sus­tained winds in­creased to 85 mph by early evening, ac­cord­ing to the U.S. Na­tional Hur­ri­cane Cen­ter in Mi­ami. The Cat­e­gory 1 storm was cen­tered about 160 miles south­east of Cabo San Lu­cas and San Jose del Cabo and was mov­ing north­west at 16 mph on a path that would bring it near or over the area Tues­day morn­ing.
