    Hurricane Bud, now a Category 2 storm, is headed toward Mexico and is on track to pound parts of the Pacific coast on Friday night, authorities said. The storm has 110-mile-per-hour winds and is expected to soak the states of Jalisco, Colima, Michoacán, Guerrero, and Guanajuato, reported the Mexican news agency Notimex. The storm is expected to weaken by late evening, but people were still warned to take precautions, as sea swells could cause “life-threatening surf and rip-current conditions."
