Active 2023 Hurricane Season: 2023 sees Hurricane Norma targeting Mexico's Los Cabos and the new Hurricane Tammy approaching the Caribbean.
Current Hurricane Warnings:
Both Mexico and the Caribbean have issued urgent hurricane warnings in response.
Mainland U.S. Status:
The U.S. mainland remains unaffected directly, but remnants of Norma might bring needed rain to central U.S.
By Saturday, Norma, with winds of 110 mph, is predicted to approach resorts in Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo.
Hurricane specialist, John Cangialosi, suggests Norma will move north, then linger near southern Baja California Peninsula.
Heavy rainfall from Norma is expected from Friday, which might lead to flash floods and potential mudslides.
Tourist Status in Los Cabos:
Despite the impending hurricane, Los Cabos' hotels are three-quarters full, with minimal tourist movement.
500 troops have been deployed for storm preparations in the resort, with plans for potential emergency shelters.
Hurricane Tammy's Formation:
Meanwhile, in the Atlantic, Hurricane Tammy emerges, heading towards the Leeward Islands, with threats of heavy rainfall, flash floods, and mudslides.
