The Eastern Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15 through November 30, with peak activity from July through September.

The center of the storm was located about 455 miles west-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. Fortunately for Mexicans and travellers alike, the storm's track keeps it well offshore throughout its life cycle.

Hurricane Aletta rapidly intensified on Friday morning, becoming a major category four hurricane as it moved further away from Mexico's Pacific coast, forecasters said. In 2017, the basin saw 18 named storms, 9 of which become hurricanes, with 4 classified as major storms (category 3 or higher).

Twenty-five states experienced a rise in suicides by more than 30%, the government report finds. The report is bad news, the CDC acknowledges, but people are not helpless to prevent suicide.

Hurricane Aletta is centered about 500 miles south of Mexico's Baja Peninsula and is tracking west-northwest away from land. Infrared satellite images show the storm has a distinct, 20-mile wide eye, with deep convection.

Forecasters expect the storm to make a turn toward the northwest over the weekend before a westerly turn Sunday or Monday.

If it becomes a tropical storm, it will be named Bud. The NHC said it's too early to tell whether the second system will pose a threat to the Pacific coast next week. The first eastern Pacific hurricane forms on June 26 on average.
