According to the National Meteorological Service ( SMN ), Tropical Depression “12-E” intensified to Tropical Storm “Linda” off the coast of Guerrero, Mexico, this Tuesday afternoon.
As reported by the agency, the circulation of the storm will cause very heavy to occasional intense rains in western and southern Mexico.
Therefore, the SMN asked the population to take extreme precautions due to rains, wind, and waves (including maritime navigation) to comply with the recommendations issued by the authorities of the National Civil Protection System, in each state.
