MEXICO CITY (AP) — Tropical Storm Kevin is gaining force in the eastern Pacific and forecasters say it’s likely to reach hurricane strength while remaining far off Mexico’s coasts. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said the storm had maximum sustained winds of 60 mph (95 kph) Sunday while centered about 495 miles (795 kilometers) south of the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula. It was heading westward at 8 mph (13 kph). Forecasters said it is likely to become a hurricane on Monday, but its only threat to land is expected to be storm-driven surf.
