The Wall Street Journal: Mexico braces for second tropical storm in a week

MEXICO CITY — Tropical storm Javier formed Sunday off Mexico’s Pacific coast, the second cyclone to affect the country in recent days after tropical storm Earl caused mudslides and a number of deaths in eastern states.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Javier was centered about 110 miles west of the Pacific coast port of Manzanillo at 2 p.m. EDT, and is expected to move toward the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula, the site of the Los Cabos tourist resort.

Heavy rain was expected in Pacific coastal regions. The port of Manzanillo was closed Sunday, and the government issued warnings to small vessels elsewhere along the coast.
