PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, Aug. 4 (UPI) — Hurricane Eugene retained its strength but was expected to weaken Thursday as it moves over colder Pacific waters, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said.

Eugene, a Category 3 storm with sustained winds of 125 mph, was about 670 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California, Mexico, and moving in a west-northwesterly direction at 14 mph, the center said in its 5 a.m. EDT advisory.

No coastal watches or warnings were in effect.

The center said Eugene would maintain its track and rapidly weaken during the next 48 hours.
