Civil Protection in Puerto Vallarta is keeping watch on Hurricane Marty along the Pacific Coast of Mexico.
According to the National Meteorological Services, Hurricane Marty is moving northeast along the coast of Guerrero, Michoacan, and Colima, without any warnings in the Puerto Vallarta area at this time.
Marty is expected to produce rainfall amounts of 6 to 12 inches over the Mexican state of Guerrero and 2 to 5 inches over the state of Michoacan through Thursday. Isolated amounts of 20 inches are possible in Guerrero from the Sierra Madre del Sur mountains toward the coast. These rains are expected to produce life-threatening flash floods and mud slides, especially in areas of mountainous terrain.
The path of the hurricane in relationship with Puerto Vallarta will be better known Wednesday as the hurricane is expected to make a slight turn towards the west-northwest and move away from the coast. How soon that happens will be better determined tomorrow.
Currently Puerto Vallarta can expect the possibility of heavy rains and surf, events that are common in the area this time of the year, and the storm is not expected to become a threat directly to the area beyond producing rains Wednesday and Thursday.
Local government urges people to stay informed of any notices issued by Civil Protection in the city.
Vallarta Daily will update this story if any warnings or watches are issued for the area.
