(AP) — Hurricane Grace has struck Mexico’s Caribbean coast just south of the ancient Mayan temples of Tulum, tearing the roofs off some homes, knocking out power to thousands and keeping tourists off white sand beaches as it crossed the Yucatan Peninsula. The push across land weakened the storm, but by evening it was centered back over water — the Gulf of Mexico. And the U.S. National Hurricane Center says it’s regaining strength as it heads for a collision with the Mexican mainland late Friday or early Saturday. Strong winds downed trees, road signs and flimsier structures on the Caribbean coast.
