A tropical cyclone Nora struck the west coast of Mexico, killing at least one person and was downgraded from the hurricane the Sunday after the hurricane, officials said.
Jalisco Governor Enrique Alfaro said Nora, who unleashed a torrent of rain and flash floods, accused the boy of a body found after a partial collapse of a hotel in Puerto Vallarta.
A boy from Spain seven years ago was found missing and later dead, according to Alfaro. Authorities were looking for a woman in a car that was swept away by the flood. The governor added that the storm caused serious damage, mainly in Puerto Vallarta and Ciuatran.
According to state officials, Nora was accused of injuring at least two people in Jalisco, and two were injured in a landslide along the highway on Saturday. twitter..Couple Rescued from the flood In the state of the latter half of the day.
At noon local time, the National Hurricane Center said the storm was moving northwest, with a sustained wind of 70 mph about 85 miles northwest of Mazatlan, Sinaloa. After the storm formed in the Pacific Ocean, it landed in Jalisco, including Puerto Vallarta, on Saturday.
Nora was expected to move “very close” to Mexico’s west coast, but could disappear if it turned inland “the next day or so”, the center said. The storm was expected to diminish as it was agitated along the coast.
Although Nora was downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical cyclone, Mexican officials said the storm still unleashed chain floods and landslides, prompting some water rescues. NS authorities He warned people living in mountainous areas that they needed to be prepared to evacuate if necessary.
Along the west coast of Mexico, up to 12 inches of rain was predicted in some areas, resulting in life-threatening flash floods and landslides, the center said.
On Sunday afternoon, the Hurricane Center issued a tropical cyclone warning for most of Sinaloa and a tropical cyclone warning for the southern part of the Baja California Peninsula in Mexico.
As the storm approached Baja California, including the resort city of Cabo San Lucas, life-threatening waves and rip currents were expected, the center said.
After the storm’s eyes left Mexico, forecasters said Nora was expected to bring rain and flash floods to parts of the southwestern United States and the central Rocky Mountains.
Tropical Cyclone Nora devastated parts of Mexico the same weekend. Hurricane Aida landed in Louisiana and struck the state with potentially life-threatening winds and floods that could be the most devastating hurricane that has hit Louisiana since Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
It was a dazzling few weeks for a meteorologist. Meteorologists have monitored three named storms that formed quickly and continuously in the Atlantic Ocean and caused flooding and damaging winds in different parts of the United States and the Caribbean.
Tropical Cyclone Fred landed on the Florida Panhandle on August 16th. As Fred moved across the southeast, it caused heavy rain and touched several tornadoes. At least five people were killed after the storm wiped out houses in western North Carolina with flash floods.
A grace was formed in the eastern Caribbean Sea on August 14, the same day that a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck the western peninsula of Haiti. The storm quickly moved west as the country struggled to free those trapped in the rubble, causing at least 10 inches of rain. Grace then re-landed on the Yucatan Peninsula, causing more heavy rains, power outages, and hundreds of evacuation. At least eight people were killed in the third landing on the east coast of mainland Mexico.
Henri was then formed as a tropical cyclone off the east coast of the United States on August 16. It was enhanced to a Category 1 hurricane, but was downgraded before landing on Rhode Island. It struck the northeast with strong winds and torrential rains, powering more than 140,000 households from New Jersey to Maine.
The relationship between hurricanes and climate change is becoming increasingly clear. Warming planets can be expected to experience strong hurricanes over time, with the highest incidence of the most powerful storms. However, factors such as strong wind shear do not form weak storms, which can reduce the total number of storms.
