Hurricane Bud forms in the Pacific off Mexico

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Hurricane Bud has formed off the southwestern coast of Mexico.

The Miami-based agency said early Thursday the storm was packing sustained winds of 75 mph and was located in the Pacific Ocean about 385 miles southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico.

Wind and storm conditions are expected to reach the southwestern coast of Mexico by late Friday.

Mexico had issued the tropical storm watch on Wednesday night along the Pacific coast from Punta San Telmo to La Fortuna.
