25 October, 2018, 20:27
The storm will likely bring 1 to 2 inches of rain and "a period of 40- to 50-mph wind gusts to the coast", according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dave Dombek. The storm will continue to weaken as it hits the Sierra Madre mountain range and pumps moisture into northern Mexico and Texas.
A few hours before daybreak, the storm was about 75 miles (120 km) east-northeast of the city of Durango, blowing maximum sustained winds of 35 mph (55 kph), the Miami-based U.S. National Hurricane Center said.
"Several other tourist getaways in the state of Nayarit as well as the beach resort of Puerto Vallarta in Jalisco state were close to Willa´s path, which was forecast to bring a life-threatening storm surge of ocean water, wind and rainfall".
It is now moving north-eastwards across Mexico where it is expected to lose strength rapidly, and is likely to become a tropical storm or depression on Wednesday.
Hurricane Willa slammed into Mexico's Pacific coast late on Tuesday, raking it with winds of 120 miles per hour (195 kph) that brought power outages, buffeted buildings, and dumped torrential rain on tourist resorts where thousands of people had moved to safety.
Willa came ashore about 50 miles (80km) south-east of Mazatlan, a resort city that is home to high-rise hotels and about 500,000 people, including many United States and Canadian expatriates.
Classes across the state were suspended on Wednesday, Durango governor Jose Aispuro said on Twitter.
That being said, Hurricane Willa is churning at a terrifying speed, wreaking havoc on approximately 136-mile stretch of land.
It was on course to slam into Mexico between the states of Sinaloa and Nayarit, somewhere around the resort town of Mazatlan. It warned of the danger of flash flooding and landslides in mountainous areas. Vicente likely will be a tropical depression by the time it comes ashore, the hurricane center said.
The storm has been characterized as life-threatening and potentially disastrous by the forecasters and the residents have been warned to exercise caution.
A hurricane warning was posted for Mexico's western coast between San Blas and Mazatlan, including Islas Marias, home to a nature reserve and federal prison directly in the forecast track of the storm. Mazatlan is a popular vacation spot and home to a large number of American and Canadian expatriates.
