Storm Enrique misses direct impact on Baja resorts


Tropical storm Enrique misses direct hit on Baja resorts
CABO SAN LUCAS: Tropical Storm Enrique whirled toward the east of the tip of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula, missing an immediate hit on the sea shore resorts there in the midst of expectations it would to debilitate into a tropical sorrow at some point Wednesday. 

Enrique's greatest supported breezes were down to 40 mph (65 kph) late Tuesday, scarcely a typhoon, the US National Hurricane Center said. The tempest's center was around 80 miles (130 kilometers) upper east of Cabo San Lucas at the southern tip of Baja and moving northwest at 12 mph (19 kph). 

Mexican authorities in Baja California Sur state had shut the ports of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo to more modest boats also the ports of Los Barriles and La Paz, while city authorities in Los Cabos arranged to open sanctuaries if there should arise an occurrence of flooding. Forecasters said the tempest could drop 1 to 2 creeps of downpour in the state, with confined measures of as much as 4 inches. 

Enrique turned into the Pacific season's first tropical storm Saturday, yet it remained adrift while brushing past the Cabo Corrientes swell on Mexico's southwestern coast Sunday night and afterward setting out toward Baja California.
