Central America braced for Felix

Thousands of residents and tourists have been fleeing coastal areas in Central America as Hurricane Felix churns through the Caribbean.

It threatens to become a category five storm for a second time, with winds nearing 250km/h (155mph). Forecasters warn it is "extremely dangerous".

It is expected to make landfall on the Nicaragua-Honduras border at 1230 GMT

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Henriette has reached hurricane strength as it heads for Mexico's Baja California peninsula.

It caused landslides in the Mexican city of Acapulco at the weekend that killed six people.

The storm is currently 185km (115 miles) south-east the peninsula and is expected to hit on Tuesday afternoon.
