MIAMI  — The National Weather Service says Tropical Storm Beatriz has reached hurricane strength, as its heavy rains and strong winds have begun pounding resort beaches on Mexico's Pacific coast.

Authorities closed the popular tourist ports of Acapulco and Manzanillo ahead of the hurricane's arrival.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Beatriz had sustained winds of about 75 miles per hour (121 kph) and is expected to brush over Mexico's southwestern coast before heading back out to sea.

Beatriz is located about 85 miles (140 kms) southeast of Manzanillo and moving northwest at 12 mph (19 kph).
