Hurricane grows as it nears Mexico

Published: Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

ACAPULCO, Mexico (AP) – Hurricane Raymond gained more strength as it remained nearly stationary off Mexico’s southern Pacific coast Monday, though it threatened to hurl heavy rains onto a sodden region already devastated by last month’s Tropical Storm Manuel.

Guerrero state authorities said it was raining in places in the afternoon, but so far no torrential rains had hit the area. More than 100 people were evacuated as a precaution from a mountain town east of Acapulco, authorities said.
