Hurricane Norma Accelerates to a Category 4 As it Closes in on Land

9 months ago

Thursday morning, Norma strengthened into a monster Category 4 hurricane as forecasters had predicted. As the massive storm approaches Mexico, residents are warned of life-threatening conditions.

While Norma won't make landfall in the U.S., it's still predicted to affect weather in the Central U.S. by next week.

Where Will Hurricane Norma Make Landfall?

As of Thursday morning, Hurricane Norma was 410 miles southwest of Cabo San Lucas with sustained wind speeds of 130 mph and moving north at 7 mph.

While Norma may be a Category 4 hurricane now, the storm is expected to lose intensity as it enters into cooler waters before making landfall in Mexico.
