Hurricane Hilary still churning up dangerous surf

Forecasters say Hilary remains a dangerous Category 3 storm as it churns up heavy surf along Mexico's Pacific coast.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Sunday that Hilary had maximum sustained winds near 125 mph (205 kph).

The center says Hilary is a small hurricane centered about 395 miles (635 kilometers) south of the southern tip of Baja California. Forecasters say the storm was moving west at 9 mph (15 kph).

Hilary is forecast to turn toward the northwest as it weakens. It currently is not expected to make landfall.
