Hurricane Rick - November 7-10, 1997

An area of cloudiness increase south of the Gulf of Tehuantepec on November 5th, which may have been spurred
by a tropical wave which moved offshore Africa on October 15.  By late on the 6th, it had become a tropical
depression.  A deep trough to its northwest led to a northerly motion initially, and by the morning of the 8th,
the cyclone had become a tropical storm.  Within 24 hours, it had become a hurricane about 130 miles south-
southwest of Acapulco.  At this point, the system had recurved more to the east as it became embedded in
deep west to southwesterly flow.  The hurricane made landfall near Puerto Escondido late on the 9th, and
weakened as it edged inland, emerging into the southeast Bay of Campeche on the 11th.
