tc roslyn 15z october 23 2022 f

Category 3 Hurricane “Roslyn” made landfall in northern Nayarit, west-central Mexico around 11:20 UTC on October 23, 2022, with maximum sustained winds of 195 km/h (120 mph) and a minimum central pressure of 960 hPa.

  • Roslyn is now the strongest eastern Pacific hurricane to make landfall since Hurricane “Patricia” hit Jalisco, Mexico on October 23, 2015

Roslyn brought damaging winds, life-threatening storm surge, and flooding rains to portions of west-central Mexico.1

Although the hurricane made landfall in a sparsely populated region of Mexico’s Pacific coast, between the resorts of Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlan, it claimed the lives of two people who took shelter in unstable structures that collapsed during the storm.

According to the Nayarit state’s Ministry of Security and Citizen Protection, a 74-year-old man was killed in Mexcaltitan de Santiago Ixcuintla when a beam fell on his head while a 39-year-old woman died when a fence collapsed in Nayarit’s Rosamorada district.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to 150 km/h (90 mph) by 15:00 UTC and to 110 km/h (70 mph) by 18:00 UTC.

At the time, the government of Mexico discontinued all warnings south of San Blas and downgraded the Hurricane Warning from San Blas to Escuinapa to a Tropical Storm Warning. By 21:00 UTC, all coastal warnings have been lifted.

Roslyn’s maximum sustained winds decreased to 75 km/h (45 mph) at 21:00 UTC and continued rapidly decreasing until the system dissipated over east-central Mexico at 03:00 UTC on October 24.

Roslyn’s remnants are expected to produce up to an additional 25 mm (1 inch) of rain across northeastern Mexico and an additional 25 to 50 mm (1 to 2 inches) of rain across portions of coastal and west-central Mexico. This rainfall could still lead to flash flooding and landslides in areas of rugged terrain.
