Major Hurricane Roslyn Is Headed Toward The Coast Of Mexico

Hurricane Roslyn attained the strength of a Category 4 storm on Saturday as it approached the shore of Mexico’s the Pacific Ocean, most likely to the north of the vacation destination of Puerto Vallarta.

Early Saturday morning, the National Hurricane Center in the United States reported that Roslyn’s maximum sustained winds had climbed to 130 miles per hour (or 215 kilometers per hour), and it was anticipated that these speeds would continue to strengthen.

The eye of the storm was located approximately 170 miles (275 kilometers) south-southwest of Cabo Corrientes, which is the point of land that protrudes into the Pacific Ocean south of Puerto Vallarta. The storm was headed in a north-northwesterly direction and was moving at a speed of 8 mph (13 kph).

The forecast called for Roslyn to begin moving northward and then northeastward, putting it on a path that could bring it close to Cabo Corrientes and the Puerto Vallarta region on Saturday night or early Sunday before it made landfall in Nayarit state on Sunday morning. The path that Roslyn was expected to take was based on the assumption that it would begin moving northward and then northeastward.

Hurricane Orlene made landfall on October 3, a little further north in about the same region, about 45 miles (75 kilometers) southeast of the resort of Mazatlan. This was the second hurricane to make landfall in this general area this month.

The United States Hurricane Center reported that winds of hurricane force reached outward a distance of 30 miles (45 kilometers) from the center of Roslyn, while winds with tropical storm force extended outward a distance of 80 miles (130 kilometers).
