Hurricane Jova strengthening in eastern Pacific

Hurricane Jova strengthening in eastern Pacific

Forecasters say Hurricane Jova is gaining strength out in the eastern Pacific Ocean.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said early Sunday that Jova had maximum sustained winds of 85 mph (140 kph) and was centered about 385 miles (615 kilometers) west-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. It was moving east at 6 mph (9 kph).
No coastal watches or warnings had been issued, but forecasters expect Jova could become a major hurricane by Monday night and urged those in southwestern Mexico to monitor its progress.
Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Irwin continued to weaken Sunday in the eastern Pacific, about 865 miles (1,395 kilometers) southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. Irwin had maximum sustained winds of about 45 mph (75 kph) but has prompted no coastal watches or warnings.
