MEXICO'S PACIFIC COAST BRACES FOR PAULINE'S FURY

The lawn chairs were cleared from the beach, the kayaks and surfboards were pulled ashore, and windows were taped up as Hurricane Pauline spun with 115-mph winds today toward Mexico's southern Pacific coast.

Landfall for what hurricane experts called a "very dangerous" storm was expected this evening somewhere along the Oaxaca or Guerrero state coast.

Oaxaca state authorities set up 75 emergency shelters and federal officials closed six major ports between Acapulco and Puerto Madero.

Pauline is moving northwest at 6 mph.
