Miriam Becomes Major Pacific Hurricane Off Mexico

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami said Miriam is packing top sustained winds of 120 mph, making it what's classified as a major hurricane.

The hurricane formed a day earlier in the eastern Pacific and was centered about 410 miles south-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja peninsula.

The center says Miriam was moving northwest at 12 mph. No coastal watches or warnings are in effect, but swells will hit Baja's southern and western shore during the next couple of days.

In the open Atlantic, Tropical Storm Nadine was meandering far from land with top sustained winds of about 50 mph.
