9/27/01 -- Hurricane Juliette has lost intensity but, with 100 mile-per-hour winds, it is still a mighty storm. Currently, the hurricane is 125 miles to the south and west of Cabo San Lucas, moving north and west -- i.e. away from land -- at a leisurely 7 m.p.h. Princess Cruises reports that disruption has been fairly minimal; two ships sailing Mexican Riviera itineraries -- Dawn and Sun -- have pretty much managed to skirt the storm though the latter liner did have to skip a call at Cabo San Lucas. Forecasters predict Juliette will continue to parallel land rather than collide into it but the north west Mexican coast, along with Baja California, will see a lot of rain and some winds.
