Hurricane Threatens Acapulco

Real Acapulco News - 23 August, 2010

The Office of the Undersecretary of Civil Security of the State of Guerrero informs that "the system is moving towards the west at about 11 kph, intensifying, and coming closer to the coastline than previous tropical storms. The effects of the phenomenon will be felt in Acapulco during the dawn hours on Tuesday. The system could pass along Guerrero as a Category 1 hurricane, with an average distance of 350 km, increasing wave swells and generating unusually strong tides from the marine-equatorial counter currents in the beach areas, as well as substantial water in the coastal strip and in the higher parts of the mountains, as well as strong winds."

In Acapulco, classes and other events programmed for Tuesday were canceled in anticipation of hurricane Frank.
