Tropical Storm Beatriz has turned into a hurricane just before making landfall on the southwest coast of Mexico.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the center of the storm is expected to move near the coast overnight before moving away from the coast late Tuesday. The hurricane has win speeds of up to 130 kilometers per hour.

Beatriz is expected to threaten popular tourist destinations Tuesday with heavy rains, destructive waves, flash floods and mudslides.

Hurricane warnings are posted from Zihuatanejo north to Cabo Corrientes.
