Hurricane Carlos expected to make landfall near Puerto Vallarta

Hurricane Carlos has weakened slightly but is expected to regain punch, hovering stationary over the Pacific Ocean off Mexico.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said the eye of the Category 1 hurricane was about 130 kilometres south-southwest of Acapulco and Carlos had top sustained winds of 120 km/h by 8 a.m. ET Sunday.

Computer projections from the National Hurricane Center show Carlos will likely remain a Category 1 storm when it makes landfall just south of Puerto Vallarta on Tuesday. The storm is likely to lose strength as it makes landfall and pass over Puerto Vallarta . . .
