Hurricane Rina, currently a Category 2 storm, could further mar the popular resort region, which has yet to recover from the damage Hurricane Wilma caused six years ago.
Hurricane Rina now has winds of 110 mph, just shy of a Category 3 hurricane. Cancun resorts are preparing for Hurricane Rina's arrival.
Hurricane Rina is threatening Cancun and other beach resorts on the Yucatan Peninsula with heavy wind and rain.
Hurricane Rina is projected to become a major hurricane, with maximum sustained winds in excess of 110 miles an hour, within the next 48 hours. It reached hurricane status on Monday.
