Hurricane Norma closes in on Mexico’s Los Cabos resorts

Residents of Mexico’s Los Cabos resorts rushed to prepare Friday as Hurricane Norma headed toward the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, while in the Atlantic, Tammy grew into a hurricane and threatened to batter the Leeward Islands.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Tropical Storm Tammy had grown into a hurricane, with winds of 75 mph. Hurricane warnings were issued for the islands of Guadeloupe, Antigua, Barbuda, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy, Anguilla and St. Maarten.

Both hurricanes are expected to be nearing land by Saturday, but rains were expected to begin hitting Friday night.

Tammy was expected to remain at hurricane strength as it moved toward the Leeward Islands through Saturday as it passes by Guadeloupe, Antigua and Barbuda. Both Martinique and Guadeloupe are French overseas departments.
