MIAMI (AP) - Tropical Storm Kiko is quickly nearing hurricane strength in the eastern Pacific, but still poses no threat to land.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Saturday that Kiko was centered about 430 miles (690 kms) southwest of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California peninsula. It had maximum sustained winds of 70 mph (110 kmh) and was moving north at 7 mph (11 kmh).
The hurricane center said Kiko could become a hurricane Sunday, but is likely to weaken by Monday.
There are no warnings or watches in effect for land.
