Two Powerful Hurricanes in the Pacific

MIAMI -- Hurricane Darby is still Category 3 strength, making it the second major hurricane of the eastern Pacific season.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami says Darby's maximum sustained winds Friday are near 120 mph.

The hurricane is located about 250 miles south-southwest of Acapulco, Mexico. It's heading west-northwest near 6 mph.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Celia has weakened a bit but was still a Category 4 storm farther out in the Pacific. Celia's maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 135 mph. The hurricane center says Celia is approaching cooler waters and is expected to continue weakening.
Neither hurricane poses an immediate threat to land.
