(Acapulco, AN 13 May) The National Water Commission (Conagua) has announced that the rainy season, which commences on Sunday, is expected to bring 14 tropical storms to Mexico’s Pacific coast by November 30, when the period closes officially. Of these, eight are expected to reach the status of hurricane. Adrián Vázquez Gálvez, chief of the National Weather Service, said that 2010 had been the rainiest year in the last 50 years, second only to the historical high in 1958. This year is expected to be equally wet. “Global warming is the reason for the increase in the quantity and force of the hurricanes,” he said. “In this century, every year has had more storms and more rain than the previous one.”
