Storm Carlotta Forms in Pacific, South of Mexico

MEXICO CITY – Tropical Storm Carlotta Formed on Friday off the Pacific coast of the southern Mexican state of Guerrero, threatening to bring heavy rain to the center, south and southeast of the country, Mexico’s National Weather Service (SMN) said in a statement.

The SMN said that Carlotta, the third storm to form in the Pacific during this hurricane season, was located at 1800 GMT at some 95 km (59 mi) southwest of the resort town of Acapulco and was heading northeast at 7 kph (4 mph).

The storm has sustained winds of 65 kph (40 mph) and gusts of up to 85 kph, the SMN said, adding that it had issued a storm warning covering an area from Tecpan de Galeana, in Guerrero, to Laguna de Chacahua, in the neighboring state of Oaxaca.

According to the SMN’s forecast, the storm will bring heavy rainfall to the states of Michoacan, Guerrero, Oaxaca, Chiapas, Puebla, and Veracruz.

Wind gusts of 45-55 kph are expected along the coasts of Guerrero and Oaxaca, as well as a 1-3 m (3-10 ft) storm surge.

The SMN recommended residents to take maximum precautions because of the rain, the wind and the rough seas, and to pay attention to warnings by state and local authorities.

Carlotta formed soon after tropical storm Bud dissipated to a tropical depression while crossing the Sea of Cortes, leaving no casualties or major damages in the Baja California peninsula.

According to the SMN, Bud is currently heading north at 19 kph and is expected to bring heavy rain to the Baja California peninsula and northwestern Mexico.
