Rosa is intensifying in the Pacific Ocean to Category 3 hurricane

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Hurricane Rosa has intensified into a major storm in the Pacific, with maximum winds approaching 125 miles per hour (205 km / h) and anticipating additional fortification overnight, the US National Hurricane Center said on Thursday.

Rosa, a Category 3 storm on the five-stage Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind gauge, was located about 917 kilometers southwest of the southern tip of Baja California, moving west at almost 16 kph.

"Additional strengthening is expected tonight. Fluctuations in strength are possible Friday and Friday night, with a slowdown expected on Saturday and Sunday," the NHC said in its advisory.

Pink swelling is projected to affect parts of the coasts in southwest Mexico, the southern Baja California peninsula and southern California later this week and over the weekend.

"These waves are likely to lead to life-threatening surf conditions," said the Miami-based center.
