In the early hours of morning high winds and rain brought damage around the city of Puerto Vallarta.
Downed trees and power lines were reported around the city along with other damages that civil protections were handling, including a car fire reportedly started by lightening in the area of Col. Versailles
CFE began restoring power at 7:00 am to those areas hit by downed power lines and wind damaged transformers. A representative for CFE said power was expected to be restored to all areas by late afternoon.
Civil Protections Commander, Sergio Ramirez Lopez, reported that relief work is still ongoing throughout the city along with damage inspections to avoid risk to the public.
Strong tropical storms are not unusual for this time of the year in Puerto Vallarta, with August being the most active month on the average.
