(AP) — Tropical Storm Pamela is rapidly strengthening as it moves along Mexico’s Pacific coast and it’s forecast to become a major hurricane before hitting shore somewhere near the port of Mazatlan.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Pamela’s center was about 455 miles (735 kilometers) south-southwest of Mazatlan Monday and it was moving northwest at about 6 mph (9 kph). The storm had maximum winds of about 70 mph (110 kph).

The hurricane center warns of possible life-threatening storm surge, flash floods and dangerous winds around the impact area. Weakened remnants of the storm may reach Texas later.
