MIAMI (AP) - Hurricane Celia has grown into a power Category 5
storm, but it's swirling far out over the Pacific Ocean and doesn't
immediately threaten land.
The U.S. Hurricane Center in Miami says Celia was packing winds
at 160 mph (260 kph) as it churned up seas Thursday night about 785
miles (1,260 km) off the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California
peninsula. Celia was moving farther out to sea to the west at about
13 mph (20 kph).
Meanwhile, Hurricane Darby was still swirling off Mexico's coast
and also didn't immediately threaten land. The Category 1 storm was
packing winds of about 90 mph (150 kph). It was moving to the
west-northwest at about 8 mph (13 kph).
