Tropical Storm Kiko Weakens Off Mexican Riviera

October 21, 2007
Update, 4 p.m.: Tropical Storm Kiko has weakened as it moves slowly north-northwestward. A tropical storm watch may be issued later today for portions of Baja California. However, additional weakening is forecast over the next 24 hours. Stay tuned.

(October 20) -- Tropical Storm Kiko -- the 11th named storm of the Pacific season -- has hooked northwest and is not expected to make direct landfall near Zihuatanejo this weekend as previously forecasted.

However, a tropical storm watch remains in effect for portions of Mexico's Pacific coast including Manzanillo. Kiko could become a hurricane by tomorrow (current maximum sustained winds are near 70 miles per hour).

At this point, no cruise itinerary changes have been announced. We'll keep you posted.
