Kenneth can be seen attaining hurricane force on Monday.
Late-season Hurricane Kenneth underwent explosive intensification over the warm Pacific waters off Acapulco late Monday and early Tuesday.

The storm attained Category 4 force just over 24 hours after becoming a hurricane, packing maximum sustained winds of approximately 145 mph.

It later lost strength over cooler waters midway between Mexico and Hawaii.

Kenneth was expected to be a threat to only shipping lanes during its lifespan.
