Honduras  — Honduran emergency officials urged coastal residents to evacuate low-lying areas, and Mexico issued a hurricane warning, as Paula strengthened into a powerful storm and battered the Caribbean coast with strong winds and rain Tuesday.

Paula formed Monday off the coast of Honduras and quickly intensified into a hurricane early Tuesday, said the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida.

It had winds of 75 mph (120 kph) and was centered about 230 miles (370 kilometers) south-southeast of Cozumel, Mexico.
