CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico — Tropical Storm Juliette blew down trees and power lines as it blasted across the tourist resorts at the tip of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula, causing at least one death, officials said on Thursday.

The storm's maximum sustained wind decreased to near 40 mph near midday after hitting 50 mph overnight. It was centered about 95 miles northwest of Cabo San Lazaro, but it was projected to weaken and curve away from land, into the Pacific.

The storm flooded low-lying areas and collapsed at least one house, according to civil defense officials.

Much of the area is without power, including the communities of Todos Santos and Pescadero, as well as parts of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, according to state Civil Protection head Carlos Enriquez Rincon. The storm was expected to lose force.
