Mexico issues warnings for expected hurricane on Pacific coast

Storm Beatriz has formed off Mexico’s Pacific coast and is expected to strengthen into a hurricane by Friday, according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC). The NHC stated that the storm will likely move very close to or along the southwestern coast of Mexico, with a west-northwest movement at a speed of 12 mph (19 km/h). The NHC also predicted that Beatriz will become a hurricane on Friday.

In response to the approaching storm, the Mexican government has issued a hurricane watch from Playa Perula to Cabo Corrientes in Jalisco state. Ports in the area will be closed for small vessels. Additionally, a tropical storm warning is in effect from Punta Maldonado in Guerrero state to Zihuatanejo, another popular beach town in the state.

Currently, the maximum sustained winds near the storm are around 40 mph (65 kph). The NHC forecasts rainfall between 3 and 7 inches (7.5 to 18 cm) across southern Mexico from Oaxaca to Jalisco until Sunday morning. This heavy rainfall could result in flash flooding. Swells along Mexico’s southwestern coast are also expected, posing a threat of life-threatening surf and rip currents.

In summary, Storm Beatriz has formed off Mexico’s Pacific coast and is likely to become a hurricane by Friday. The Mexican government has issued warnings and precautions for popular beach resorts in the path of the storm. Heavy rainfall and dangerous surf conditions are expected in the affected areas.
