Precautions taken ahead of storm

September 01, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Mexican officials closed more than 1,000 schools, shut down ports to small fishing boats and battled flooding in Acapulco as Tropical Storm Henriette dumped heavy rain and caused a minor landslide on a highway.

Henriette was expected to become a hurricane by early Sunday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said. It was not expected to make landfall but was crawling northward.
