As of four o’clock in the afternoon this Saturday, October 22nd, the port will be closed for all types of navigation in this destination, according to the notice issued by the Secretary of the Navy through the Harbor Master, due to the presence of Hurricane category 4 “Roslyn”.

The communiqué recommends to take the due precautions, to protect its boats in safe places, to reinforce its moorings and to be alert of them; also to be attentive to the emission of the bulletins and meteorological warnings that this national maritime authority transmits, having to be extensive this information to the involved ones.

All the beaches of the bay are under black flag, Please do not come close to the beach.

Roslyn developed quickly

Hurricane Roslyn strengthened during Saturday morning to reach category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson scale. The phenomenon had barely developed into a tropical storm 12 hours ago, but it immediately intensified its winds to become a storm. Roslyn is situated 275 kilometers south-southwest of Cabo Corrientes, Jalisco, and 240 kilometers southwest of Manzanillo, Colima. It is traveling northwest at 13 kilometers per hour with maximum sustained winds of 215 kilometers per hour and gusts of 260 kilometers per hour.

Civil Protection recommendations to businesses

Civil Protection of Jalisco recommended to businessmen and hoteliers to suspend nightlife and close businesses early in Puerto Vallarta due to the fact that during Saturday night and early Sunday morning the effects of hurricane Roslyn, which is already a category 4 hurricane, will begin to be felt.

According to Miguel Cravioto, public relations director for Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacfico, “no closures have been reported at any point,” the international airport of Puerto Vallarta has not yet undergone any operational changes.
