The tropical tempest Andres strengthened into the Pacific season's first hurricane Tuesday, flooding homes, toppling trees and killing at least one person as it swiped Mexico's southwestern coast with wind and rain. The center of the storm as of 5 p.m. EDT was about 65 miles west-southwest of the port city of Manzanillo. Moving near 13 mph toward the northwest. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Andres could bring a coastal storm surge as much as 3 feet above normal while dumping as much as 8 inches of rain in a few spots. The forecast track showed the storm then weakening as it continued northwest along the coast before veering west into the open Pacific and just south of the Los Cabos resorts at the tip of the Baja California Peninsula Thursday morning.
