Newton makes landfall in mainland Mexico


CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico (AP) -- Newton is now a tropical storm as it makes landfall on Mexico's mainland.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami says Newton's near 70 mph winds will continue to weaken as the storm moves toward the U.S. border.

At last check the storm was near Bahia Kino, Mexico, and forecasters say its speed, at 17 mph, will take it into southeastern Arizona this afternoon, also dumping potentially dangerous rains on New Mexico.

Yesterday, Newton made landfall near Mexico's Los Cabos resorts.
