Hurricane Willa on Mexico’s Pacific coast becomes Category 4


MEXICO CITY: Hurricane Willa gained dangerous strength on Sunday night as it churned toward Mexico`s Pacific coast, home to some of the country`s major tourist draws, where it was forecast to unleash torrential rains and major flooding, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

The Miami-based center upgraded the menacing storm to a powerful Category 4 storm on the 5-step Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale as it lashed out maximum sustained winds of about 130 miles per hour (209 km).

Willa is expected to come ashore on Tuesday afternoon or evening.
