    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Tropical Storm Trudy has formed off Mexico’s Pacific coast southwest of Guerrero and has the potential to produce “extraordinary torrential rainfall” in the south and southeast of the country, reported the National Weather Service (SMN).

    The agency said in its report that as of 2200 local time (0300 GMT Saturday) tonight Trudy was officially a Tropical Depression 20-E.

    The report also said that Trudy is located 55 kilometers southwest of Punta Maldonado and 140 miles southeast of Acapulco, both in the state of Guerrero.

    The weather pattern is moving north at 7 kilometers per hour, with maximum sustained winds of 65 mph and gusts of 85 kilometers.

    Mexican authorities advised that a storm warning area was established from Tecpan de Galeana, Guerrero, to the Lagunas de Chacahua in Oaxaca.

    The NWS predicted that this system will generate extraordinary torrential rains, 150 to 250 millimeters with elevated waves of 2-4 meters off the coast of Guerrero and Oaxaca.

    Authorities have asked people to exercise caution due to the risk of landslides, mudslides, and overflowing rivers and streams which will cause disruption on the roads. (Crhoy)
