Forecasters Track Two Hurricanes
(2007-09-04)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - There are now two hurricanes to watch.

Henriette (hen-ree-ET') has grown into a hurricane off Mexico's Pacific coast and is on a path that would take it near or over the southern Baja Peninsula by later in the day.

Felix is a much stronger Category Five storm with winds topping out near 160 miles per hour. Forecasters say it is expected to make landfall soon near the border of Honduras and Nicaragua. The area is home to thousands of Miskito Indians, who are stranded.

Thousands of tourists have been evacuated from islands and low-lying coastal regions.

Felix is projected to roar across northern Honduras, slam into southern Belize tomorrow and then cut across northern Guatemala and southern Mexico, well south of Texas.
