MIAMI, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- Hurricane Ingrid, 125 miles east-northeast of Tampico, Mexico, began dumping rain on the Mexican coast Sunday, forecasters in Miami said.

In its 8 p.m. EDT update, the National Hurricane Center said Ingrid was 125 miles east-southeast of La Pesca, with top sustained winds of 75 mph, and was heading northwest at 3 mph.

A hurricane warning was in effect for Cabo Rojo to La Pesca, and a hurricane watch was set for north of La Pesca to Bahia Algodones.

A tropical storm warning was posted for north of La Pesca to Rio San Fernando and south of Cabo Rojo to Tuxpan.

"Preparations to protect life and property in the hurricane warning area should be rushed to completion," the NHC said.

Ingrid was expected to take a turn to the west-northwest Sunday night, followed by a turn to the west Monday.

On its forecast track, the center of the storm could be very near the hurricane warning area along the coast Monday morning.

CNN said the stormy weather in advance of Ingrid's pending landfall was responsible for two deaths.
