Event

Tropical Storm Narda caused heavy rains and some flooding in the city of Zihuatanejo (Guerrero state) on the evening (local time) of Sunday, September 29, before weakening into a tropical depression. Authorities also reported flooded roads and rivers in the port of Lazaro Cardenas (Michoacán state) and across Oaxaca state, where thousands were evacuated as a precaution. At least one person has died in Oaxaca as of Monday, September 30, due to the tropical depression.

As of 06:00 on Monday, Tropical Depression Narda is located at approximately 21.8°N, 106.5°W (map here). The depression has maximum sustained winds of 55 kph (35 mph) and is moving northwest at 24 kph (15 mph). Narda is expected to regain tropical storm strength on Monday as it moves over the Gulf of California near or just offshore the coast of northwestern mainland Mexico through Tuesday, October 1. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for San Blas to Topolobampo and in Islas Marias. Additionally, a Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for Topolobampo to Guaymas.

Life-threatening flash flooding, damaging winds, and high storm surge are likely throughout the western coast of mainland Mexico. Associated power outages and disruptions to transportation and business services are possible in areas forecast to be affected by the system over the coming days.

Advice

Individuals in areas forecast to be affected by the storm are advised to monitor local weather reports, confirm flight reservations, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities, anticipate adverse weather and power and transportation disruptions, and remember that running water can be dangerous - 15 cm (6 in) is enough to knock over an adult - and never drive through flooded streets; floodwater may also contain wastewater and chemical products.
