San Pedro Sula, Honduras -- Hurricane Felix came ashore on Nicaragua's remote Miskito Coast early yesterday as a Category 5 storm, damaging about 5,000 homes in the region before moving west toward the heart of this country of 7 million people, officials said. Less than 12 hours later and more than 1,600 miles away in the Pacific, a second and much weaker hurricane, Henriette, struck the resort city of San Jose del Cabo on the southern tip of Baja California. The center of Henriette's eye reached the Baja mainland yesterday afternoon about six miles east of San Jose del Cabo's downtown.

Hurricane Edouard's approach is likely to kick up dangerous surf, high tides and coastal flooding at the beaches this Labor Day weekend. The National Weather Service has begun to urge the expected crowds of holiday boaters and beachgoers to be careful.Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center also said yesterday that chances were growing that the storm would lose its steering currents in the coming days and become "extremely unpredictable.""Since it can do almost anything, we could have the whole eastern seaboard under the gun from a big hurricane, with tons of people at beaches," said meteorologist Mike Hopkins.

It sure didn't taste like tuna from a can. It was storm-tossed tuna -- pulled from the roiling waters of the Atlantic Ocean as Hurricane Felix teased the Maryland coast. It was moist, had the dense texture of tender beef and a rich flavor unlike any I had tasted before.It had come to me over the backyard fence, a gift from a neighbor, Edward Marshall. Marshall, a Baltimore City policeman, shared both the fish and the story of the catch with me.He told me how he and a handful of fishing buddies ended up landing 15 tuna, yellowfin and bluefin, on a boat trip out of Ocean City.

MEXICO CITY -- Hurricane Felix killed at least nine people and damaged thousands of homes as it passed through Nicaragua. But the storm failed to produce the major flooding that many feared in neighboring Honduras, officials said yesterday. Little more than a day after it came ashore as a Category 5 hurricane, Felix was downgraded to a tropical depression. In the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa, where 300,000 people were evacuated from low-lying neighborhoods, the rain stopped and life returned to normal.

OCEAN CITY -- Hurricane Felix? Felix? What kind of name is Felix for an act of nature that huffs and puffs? Felix Unger, they were thinking? What was it supposed to do, mess up the town and then tidy up after everyone's gone home?Anyway, Felix never did make much of an appearance. Like a dog chasing its own tail, it spun around for a few days safely off the shoreline, and then turned its back on everyone and bolted even farther out to sea, where it can fuss with itself all it wants."No big deal," says a guy shucking clams at a boardwalk raw bar. "We got lucky again" -- although strictly speaking, his establishment's a little empty, and for the first time in memory on a hot August weekend, you can drive along Coastal Highway and see one hotel with "Vacancy" signs lighted up. One hotel marquee declares, "Hurricane Special -- $48.95."
