CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico (AP) -- For the first time since the National Hurricane Center started keeping track in 1949, twin hurricanes have made landfall on the same day.

Hurricane Felix swarmed across Central America's remote coastline as a Category 5 monster before it quieted down to a Category 1.
