Tropical Storm Raymond

A weakening Tropical Storm Raymond moved away from Mexico's Pacific coast Wednesday, granting relief to a region devastated by a storm last month.

At its peak, Raymond was a Category 3 hurricane with winds of 125 mph (205 kph) that threatened to collide with the Mexican coast. But it spun in place offshore for more than a day before heading out to sea, largely sparing the already sodden region. (Associated Press)
