Tropical Storm Roslyn To Strengthen To Hurricane Near Mexican Resorts


(MENAFN- Emirates News Agency (WAM))

MEXICO CITY, 22nd October, 2022 (WAM) – Tropical Storm Roslyn is expected to strengthen into a hurricane when it makes landfall n Mexico's Pacific coast by Saturday night or Sunday morning, the U.S. National Hurricane Centre (NHC) was quoted by Reuters.

The storm, now some 290 km south-southwest of the Mexican port city Manzanillo, is predicted to follow the coast before turning inward near popular resort town Puerto Vallarta, an NHC map shows.

The slow-moving storm is recording maximum sustained winds near 110 kph with higher gusts, the NHC said.

A Category 1 hurricane packs winds of at least 119 kph. The NHC forecasts that Roslyn will reach 169 kph as it nears Puerto Vallarta, making it a Category 2 before it dissipates inland.

The NHC also expects Roslyn to cause a dangerous storm surge, producing 'significant coastal flooding' near and to the east of where the storm makes landfall, bringing with it 'large, destructive waves.'
