Tropical storm forms west of Mexico, but quickly weakens

MEXICO CITY — Tropical Storm Jova formed in the Pacific Ocean off Mexico's west coast, but it quickly weakened into a depression Saturday and forecasters said it posed no threat to land.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said the depression was about 270 miles (435 kilometers) west-northwest of remote Socorro Island on Saturday night and was moving toward the west, away from land, at 15 mph (24 kph).

Jova had maximum sustained winds of 35 mph (55 kph). The hurricane center's forecast said Jova would continue to weaken and likely dissipate Sunday.
