Felix Top Winds 150 Mph Ahead Of Landfall

SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras (AP) -- Hurricane Felix's top winds are 150 miles per hour as it nears the coastal region straddling the Honduras-Nicaragua border.

It's projected to rake northern Honduras, slam into southern Belize on Wednesday and then cut across northern Guatemala and southern Mexico, well south of Texas.

Planes have been shuttling tourists from island resorts, but thousands of Miskito Indians are stranded along the swampy coastline where the Category-4 storm is expected to strike.

Forecasters warn of a foot of rain from Felix and a storm surge of more than 18 feet above normal tides.
