Note of the editor about the tropical storm Nate

It is 6:30pm in Cancun, most of you probably are asking what’s going on with the tropical storm, at this moment there is no rain or wind in the area of Cancun whatsoever, everything is normal here, people is doing their normal life. We have verified if the airport is going to close and looks like it will be operating normally, very few flights report delays. Some supermakets are going to close early and the cashier lines over there are normal, no panic shopping.

It is expected rain and wind on the next few hours as the storm approaches to the eastern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula, however over the course of the day the forecasted path of Nate is changing and hopefully it will pass through the Yucatan channel according to the computer models used to predict the hurricanes path, it means that the center of the storm could not impact the Cancun area, it could pass at 80 miles east of Cancun on its way to the gulf of Mexico. If that is the case (cross fingers) we will have minimum effects and everything will be back to normal tomorrow.

The government has issued the orange alert for tropical cyclones that means high danger, that was at 4:15pm, the maximum alert is red meaning extreme danger or impact.

If you are planning to come to Cancun or the Mayan Riviera on the next days we suggest you not to cancel your vacation plans, just check if there was any aftermath of this storm.

We hope you find this information useful, we will post more information later.
