Tropical Storm Off Mexico Coast Upgraded to Hurricane 'Norbert'


A hurricane warning has been issued for the Baja Peninsula's western coast. Additionally, tropical storm watches have been extended further north along the peninsula, according to a report by the AP. Hurricane Norbert is the ninth during this active Pacific hurricane season, and the Southwestern United States is expected to feel some of the peripheral effects.

Wind and rains have already begun to bear down on the tourist center of Cabo San Lucas at Baja California's southern tip.
