Linda becomes major hurricane far off Mexican coast

Hurricane Linda strengthened to a major storm Tuesday as it swirled in the Pacific far off the Mexican coast, US forecasters said.
Linda was located some 450 kilometers west-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula at 1500 GMT, the National Hurricane Center said.
As its maximum sustained winds increased to 195 kilometers per hour, the Miami-based experts upgraded Linda to a Category 3 — or major — hurricane.
"Linda rapidly strengthens to major hurricane status," they said.
No coastal watches or warnings are in effect and Linda is expected to start weakening later Tuesday, according to NHC.
On its current trajectory, Linda is not expected to make landfall and is expected to become a tropical storm again between Wednesday and Thursday.
Still, the forecasters warned that life-threatening surf and rip current conditions could develop along the Baja California peninsula over the coming days.
