MEXICO CITY (AP) - Hurricane Douglas churned through the Pacific Ocean toward southern Mexico today after killing 35 people in a sweep across northern Colombia and Central America.

At 8 p.m. EDT on Monday, Douglas was 300 miles southeast of the resort of Acapulco. The U.S. National Weather Service said it was moving west at 20 miles an hour, with sustained winds of 80 mph and gusts of 97 mph.

Up to six inches of rain fell over parts of southern Mexico, creating the risk of flash floods and mudslides in mountainous regions.
