MEXICO CITY — Hurricane Celia howled toward the open ocean, away from Mexico's Pacific coast Sunday.

The first hurricane of the 2010 season had maximum sustained winds of about 75 mph (120 kph) and was expected to gradually strengthen.

A Category 1 hurricane, Celia was centered about 365 miles (590 kilometers) south of Acapulco on Sunday afternoon, the US National Hurricane Center in Miami said.

The storm was moving westward at about 7 mph (11 kph). That course would take Celia into the open Pacific, and forecasters said there was no immediate threat to land.
