Kenneth weakens rapidly to Category 2 hurricane

Forecasters say Hurricane Kenneth is weakening rapidly and has been downgraded to a Category 2 storm in the eastern Pacific.
There is no threat to land from what had been the strongest late-season hurricane in that area on record when it earlier reached Category 4 status.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Wednesday that Kenneth has maximum sustained winds near 110 mph (175 kph). The storm was centered about 840 miles (1,350 kilometers) south-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California, Mexico.
It is moving west at 9 mph (15 kph)
Kenneth is expected to weaken further and could be downgraded to a tropical storm by Thursday. There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
The eastern Pacific hurricane season ends Nov. 30.
