Severe flash floods hit southern Mexico

Low pressure area related to remnants of Hurricane Julia brings heavy rain to southern Mexico

A small area of low pressure, partially related to remnants of Hurricane “Julia” formed about 160 km (100 miles) south of the coast of southern Mexico. The system is dropping heavy rainfall over southern parts of the country and causing severe flash flooding.

Environmental conditions are marginally favorable for some additional development of this system through the end of this week, as long as it remains offshore.

Regardless of development, heavy rainfall could cause flash flooding across portions of southern Mexico during the next several days, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) warns.
