Tropical Storm Miriam forms in eastern Pacific


MIAMI — Forecasters say Tropical Storm Miriam has formed over the eastern Pacific, but it remains well offshore and does not pose a threat to land.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Saturday that Miriam was centered about 640 miles (1,030 kilometers) south-southeast of the southern tip of Baja California. It had maximum sustained winds of about 40 mph (65 kph) and was moving west-northwest at 5 mph (8 kph).

Forecasters say Miriam could become a hurricane by Monday.

    Delikado ang bagyong ito dahil ang ngalan ay Miriam.  Siguradong paiba-iba ng takbo ito dahil kulang din sa pag-iisip. Ang bagyong ito na nakatutok sa California ay baka biglang tumawid ng Pacific Ocean at pumunta sa Pilipinas.  Ingat dito sa Bagyong Miriam dahil hangin lang nito ay nakalulula na.
