October 11, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Hurricane Norbert regained power as a Category 2 storm in the Pacific, churning toward Baja California and forcing hundreds of people to seek shelter.

Packing maximum sustained winds of 100 mph, Norbert was due to make landfall today near the city of La Paz, avoiding a direct hit on the beach resort of Los Cabos, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center.

Authorities began evacuating people from low-lying areas on the western side of the Baja peninsula. Fishermen hauled boats out of the water.
