The phenomenon, which emerged last Tuesday as a tropical storm, is located 535 kilometers southwest of Playa Perula, Jalisco and 545 kilometers southwest of Manzanillo, Colima.

According to the latest warning from the SMN, Norma is moving north at 13 kilometers per hour with sustained winds of 130 kilometers per hour and gusts of up to 155 kilometers.

The meteorological entity also declared that, as it advances, Norma will cause very intense rains in Nayarit and will reinforce the probability of scattered rains and showers in Baja California Sur, the Sierra Madre Occidental and the center of the country. In addition, “its extensive cloud bands will cause intense rains in Jalisco, Colima, Michoacán and Guerrero.

Later, the forecast foresees that the winds will reach gusts of between 60 and 80 kilometers per hour, including the formation of waterspouts and waves of two to four meters high on the coastlines of Jalisco, Colima, Michoacán and Guerrero.

For all the above, the SMN called on the population to "extreme precautions in general in the areas of the mentioned states due to rain, wind and waves, including maritime navigation, and heed the recommendations issued by the Civil Protection authorities." .

Hurricane Norma arrives after the almost simultaneous passage of cyclones Lidia and Max that left five dead. This organism is the fourteenth named cyclone of this season in the Pacific, preceded by Adrian, Beatriz, Calvin, Dora, Eugene, Fernanda, Greg, Hilary, Irwin, Jova, Kenneth, Lidia and Max.

Specialists consider that Hilary has been the most damaging of all, since last August it left four dead in its wake in the states of Baja California, Baja California Sur and Sinaloa, all in northern Mexico.

In May, the Mexican Government predicted the possible formation of up to 38 named cyclones in the 2023 season, of which five could severely hit the country. Of these, between 16 and 22 systems can enter through the Pacific Ocean, and between 10 and 16 through the Atlantic.
