GUATEMALA CITY - Tropical storm Dora, the fourth named storm of the Pacific hurricane season, strengthened off the coast of Central America on Monday, threatening heavy rains on the coffee and sugar growing region.

The storm, with winds of about 95 kph, could reach hurricane strength on Tuesday but is not forecast to make a direct hit on land and there are no coastal warnings in effect, the US National Hurricane Center said.

Dora is located south of Guatemala and southern Mexico and is moving up the Pacific coastline, which does not have major oil installations.
