MIAMI (August 29, 2013)--Tropical Storm Juliette was moving northwest along the Pacific coast of Mexico's Baja California peninsula Thursday, producing wind and rain.
The storm's maximum sustained winds early Thursday decreased to near 45 miles per hour.
A tropical storm warning was been extended northward and was in effect for the peninsula's west coast from Agua Blanca to Punta Eugenia and for the east coast from La Paz to San Evaristo.
As the storm bore down Wednesday in Cabo San Lucas, police officers used their patrol cars' speakers to warn people in neighborhoods prone to flooding and urge them to go to one of 164 shelters set up by authorities.
The storm was moving at near 22 miles per hour and was expected to lose tropical storm strength by Thursday night or early Friday.
