The primary goal of the installation of black flags on the beaches of the Cabo San Lucas delegation, according to the Federal Maritime Terrestrial Zone (ZOFEMAT) Los Cabos, is to prevent any kind of accident.

Currently a category 4 hurricane with an eye diameter of 37 kilometers, “Hilary” is still moving west-northwest at 20 kilometers per hour. Heavy downpours, wind gusts of 80 to 100 kph, and swells of five to seven meters high along the coasts are anticipated in Baja California Sur.

Zofemat Los Cabos has announced that due to the increase in waves, it was decided to install black flags from Corsario beach, better known as “La Empacadora”, to “El Tule” beach in Cabo San Lucas, so it is strictly forbidden to enter these areas.

In addition, the Secretary of the Navy and the Undersecretary of the Navy have communicated the closure for small boats due to bad weather conditions. Swells of 3-4 feet and southeast winds of 8 knots with gusts of 10-12 knots have been recorded, which has led to the hoisting of the yellow/blue flag on the weather traffic light.

This measure is intended to ensure the safety of people, boats and property. Boaters are advised not to take bow rides in dinghies or other small craft during this weather.
