Weakened Odile heads over Mexico toward Arizona

Mexico's government airlifted thousands of stranded foreign tourists out of the hurricane-ravaged resort of Los Cabos, as a weakened Odile headed over the Gulf of California Wednesday on a path toward the U.S. state of Arizona. The remnants of Odile, which has been downgraded from a Category 3 hurricane to a tropical storm, are expected to reach Arizona Wednesday evening and strike hardest in the Tucson area, though forecasters said that Phoenix could get lashed with rain and heavy winds as well.

By JIM KUHNHENN Associated Press WASHINGTON - The Obama administration is ramping up its response to West Africa's Ebola crisis, preparing to assign 3,000 U.S. military personnel to the afflicted region to supply medical and logistical support to overwhelmed local health care systems and to boost the number of beds needed to isolate and treat victims of the epidemic. President Barack Obama planned to announce the stepped up effort Tuesday during a visit to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta amid alarm that the outbreak could spread and that the deadly virus could mutate into a more easily transmitted disease.
