Max becomes a hurricane off Mexico's Pacific coast, aims at Acapulco

Hurricane Max is threatening the resort city of Acapulco along with other coastal communities on Mexico's southwestern coast

Max became a Category 1 hurricane on Thursday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said, moving toward Mexico's tourist-laden Pacific coast and bearing down on a region that includes resorts like Acapulco, Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa.

Max was located about 105 miles (170 km) west-southwest from Acapulco with winds of 45 mph (75 kph), the Miami-based center said. It's expected to strengthen slightly before making landfall sometime tonight.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 10 miles from the eye of the storm.

Hurricane Irma: How those receding waters may have saved Tampa
With a 3.25 day lifetime as a Category 5, Irma tied an unnamed 1932 Cuba hurricane for the longest lifetime as a Category 5. The airport for Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has re-opened Tuesday morning after closing as Hurricane Irma pounded the state.

Hurricane conditions were expected in the warning area within the next 12 hours. "This includes the 1935 Labor Day Hurricane which was remembered as one of the most intense USA hurricanes based on pressure and maximum wind speeds", Samuhel said. Heavy rains from the storm may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides, the center said.

A risky storm surge is expected to produce significant coastal flooding near and to the east of where the center makes landfall.
