Mexico earthquake: The tremor struck about 72 miles south of Los Mochis, a city just inland from the coast in Sinaloa. It was centered at a relatively shallow depth of 5.6 miles.
The capture of alleged Tijuana drug trafficker Teodoro “El Teo” Garcia Simental marks the third high-profile take-down of a Mexican drug trafficker in less than a month. He is considered among the most vicious traffickers in the country.
The storm has weakened to a Category 2 hurricane, down from one of the strongest on record to have threatened Baja California.
Mexican authorities are scrambling to get many of the peninsula's residents to evacuate as the nearly Category 5 storm approaches.
