Skooter reporting 05/25/12

Late Thursday, Hurricane Bud is gathering strength off Mexico's Pacific coast and is now classified as Category Three storm on the five-level Saffir-Simpson scale, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

The approaching storm was about 170 miles southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, packing sustained winds of almost 115 miles per hour, the Miami-based NHC said.

The current forecast - the center of storm is expected to move inland along the Mexican coast by late Friday, the NHC said. Bud is still expected to reach the coast of Mexico as a hurricane despite that the storm would grow weaker overnight Thursday to Friday.

In addition to that, Bud is expected to pour five to eight inches of rain in the Mexican coastal states of Michoacan, Colima, Jalisco and southern Nayarit with possible maximum amounts of 12 inches.

NHC warned that this rainfall could trigger life-threatening flash floods, mudslides and also there would be possible high-risk of storm surge strong enough to spark massive coastal flooding near and to the east of where the epicenter makes landfall.
