MEXICO CITY –
Tropical Storm Bonnie strengthened into a storm Sunday night in the Pacific, more than a day after it crossed Central America from the Caribbean, bringing heavy rain but little damage.
Forecasters said they expect the storm to stay offshore well and pose no threat to land as it typically moves northwest off Mexico’s southern coast.
Bonnie had maximum sustained winds of 130 kilometers per hour late Sunday, the US National Hurricane Center said. It is centered 335 km south of Salina Cruz, Mexico and moving west-northwest at 28 km/h.
