Hurricane Andres strengthens far off coast of Mexico

MIAMI (AP) — Hurricane Andres is getting a little stronger as it spins far off the coast of Mexico.

The first named storm of the eastern Pacific hurricane season poses no threat to land.

Andres had maximum sustained winds of 90 mph (150 kph) Saturday morning. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says some additional strengthening is possible Saturday, but the storm is expected to start weakening later in the day and through Sunday night.

Andres is centered 720 miles (1,155 kms) off the southern tip of Baja California, Mexico, and is moving northwest at 7 mph (11 kph).
