Storm Rosa Approaches Mexico’s Baja California

MEXICO CITY – Tropical Storm Rosa continues moving toward the Baja California Peninsula, where it is forecast to make landfall this Monday afternoon, Mexico’s National Meteorological Service (SNM) said.

At 1200 GMT, Rosa was situated at some 170 km/h (105 mph) west-southwest of Punta Eugenia in the state of Baja California Sur.

The tropical storm is moving in a northeasterly direction at 19 km/h (12 mph) with maximum sustained winds of 85 km/h (53 mph) and gusts up to 100 km/h (62 mph).

“The system could make landfall on the central or northern coast of the Baja California Peninsula,” the SMN said in its latest bulletin.

The SMN forecasts that Rosa, which formed a week ago in the Pacific Ocean and grew to a Category 4 hurricane, will become a tropical depression before sunrise Tuesday.

Several states of northwest Mexico are still on the alert for Rosa’s arrival, which will cause isolated rainstorms.

Rain and wind forecasts are also influenced by Tropical Storm Sergio, located at 950 km south-southwest of Manzanillo in Colima state, and which is moving westward away from the country.

The SMN recommended that people in states hit by downpours from strong to intense isolated storms take the greatest precautions against the wind, rain and surging tides.

As a safety measure, the Emergency Management office announced that school classes have been suspended this Monday in several municipalities of Sonora and Baja California.
