MIAMI (AP) - A tropical depression has formed south of Mexico in the Pacific.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Thursday morning that the storm is about 260 miles (420 kilometers) south-southeast of Acapulco. It's moving northwest at 10 mph (17 kph) and has maximum sustained winds of 35 mph (55 kph).
There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect. The center in Miami says that on the forecast track, the center of the storm should move parallel to the coast of southwestern Mexico but remain offshore.
