Mexico on hurricane alert
Mexico City: Mexico`s Civil Protection Department has issued an alert for Hurricane Raymond, as it approached the Guerrero and Michoacan states, authorities said.
The rain brought on by the hurricane "will be very strong in next 72 hours along the Mexican Pacific coast", reported Xinhua quoting David Korenfeld, director of the National Water Commission, as saying Sunday.
"The storm has evolved rapidly. We advised the inhabitants of coastal areas to protect the windows with masking tape or wood, and do not leave objects in yards and streets," he said.
Heavy rainfall is possible in Mexico in the next few days, and floods and landslides are expected as well, according to the US National Hurricane Centre.
Mexico suffered its worst flooding and landslide when tropical storms Manuel and Ingrid battered the country last month, leaving 157 people dead and 1.7 million people homeless.
