Hurricane lashes Bermuda as new storm aims at Mexico resorts
MIAMI (AP) - Hurricane Humberto rushed past Bermuda, lashing the British Atlantic territory with powerful winds for hours before beginning to move away early Thursday, as new Hurricane Lorena swirled in the Pacific posing a threat to resorts on Mexico's southwestern coast.
The fast-moving Category 3 Humberto began bashing Bermuda with hurricane-strength winds Wednesday afternoon and passed to within about 75 miles (130 kilometers) of the island during the night before heading out into the Atlantic. Forecasters said tropical storm-force winds would continue into Thursday.
In the Pacific off Mexico, newly formed Hurricane Lorena was predicted to "near or over the southwestern coast" somewhere between the port of Manzanillo and Puerto Vallarta from Wednesday night into Thursday night.
