Hurricane Max strikes southern Mexico close to Acapulco

Published on : Friday, September 15, 2017

hurricaneHurricane Max has struck southern Pacific coast as a Category 1 storm on Thursday.

 

It was expected to move inland into the state of Guerrero that is a region including the resort city of Acapulco. The U.S. Hurricane Center had issued a hurricane warning for Max for the coastline between Zihuatanejo and Punta Maldonado. The center said that Max would be weakening as it moves over land but then it is likely to usher in ‘life threatening flash floods and rainfall’ to Oaxaca and Guerrero states.

 

Max had maximum sustained wind speeds of 80 mph.

 

It was located at a distance of nearly 55 miles from the east-southeastern portion of Acapulco and was travelling towards the east at 8 mph, as reported by the hurricane center.

 

The region to where Hurricane Max is currently heading is sparsely populated, mostly comprising fishing villages.

 

Acapulco that is located at a distance of nearly 30 miles from where the hurricane had made landfall was struck by strong winds and rain that blew down some branches on the coastal boulevard.

 

Also on Thursday, tropical storm Norma started forming farther out to the west in the Pacific and was expected to grow stronger and travel towards Baja California Peninsula that is studded with resorts.
