MIAMI, Aug. 3 (UPI) — Hurricane Eugene remained far away from the Mexican coast Wednesday as it churned about in the Pacific Ocean, the National Hurricane Center said.
Eugene, a Category 3 storm with sustained winds of 115 mph, was about 570 miles from Baja California, Mexico, moving west-northwest at 14 mph, the Miami-based center said in its 5 a.m. EDT advisory.
No coastal watches or warnings were in effect.
The center said Eugene would remain on its current path and pose no threat to land. The storm could strengthen early Wednesday before it begins to weaken as it moves over colder water.
