Event

According to the US-based National Hurricane Center, Tropical Storm Xavier was located approximately 170 km (105 mi) west-southwest of Manzanillo (Colima state) as of 06:00 (local time) on Monday, November 5, and moving away from the area. The storm is not expected to make landfall. However, continued heavy rain - up to 10 cm (4 in) - and strong winds are forecast for the region, notably coastal areas, in the coming hours, e.g. the states of Colima, Jalisco, Guerrero, and Michoacán. A tropical storm warning has been issued for the coastline between San Telmo and Pérula. Associated flooding, landslides, material damages, and power outages are possible.

Context

Mexico's Pacific Hurricane Season extends from May 15 to November 30 (and the Atlantic Hurricane Season from June 1 to November 30), with the largest concentration of storms typically occurring between August and October.

Advice

Individuals in Mexico are advised to follow weather forecasts issued by the Mexican weather service in the coming hours and days and adhere to any advice issued by regional authorities (e.g. potential evacuation orders). In the event of flooding, keep in mind that driving or walking through running water can be dangerous - 15 cm (6 in) of running water is enough to knock over an adult.
