Hurricane John To Devastate Baja (?)

Or so the front page headline would make one think

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Click for full size. It says "Hurricane headed to baja could be category 4.

But, what does the actual story say?

John became the sixth Pacific hurricane of the season earlier in the day and quickly grew in strength with maximum sustained winds reaching 115 mph. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said it would likely grow even stronger.

However, it was not expected to make a direct hit on land or affect the United States. Long-term predictions had it moving to the northwest, parallel to the coastline, with its outer winds lashing the resorts of Acapulco, Ixtapa, Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos. John could cause landslides and flooding before heading out to sea, the hurricane center said.

So it's kinda going to sideswipe the area, but it isn't really heading towards Baja. Anything to freak people out, eh CNN?

Global warming has to be connected somehow.
