Forecasters say Tropical Storm Emilia could become a hurricane in the next day or so, but the storm is not expected to threaten land.

On Sunday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Emilia was moving away from land over open ocean and was 550 miles (885 kilometers) south of Manzanillo, Mexico. Maximum sustained winds were recorded at 50 mph (80 kph).

Meanwhile, Hurricane Daniel was still swirling farther out at sea. It was more than 1,000 miles (more than 1,600 kilometers) west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. Daniel was a Category 2 storm but is expected to weaken.
