Hurricane Lorena is currently located over southwestern Mexico drenching the region and threatening to unleash life-threatening flash floods and mudslides. The storm which is lashing the region with strong force winds has led to hurricane and tropical storm warnings to be implemented. Lorena strengthened into a hurricane right before it hit the coast and it is believed that in some areas where the storm is predicted to hit will be slammed with 40 percent of its annual rainfall. According to the 4am CDT (10am BST) NOAA update, Hurricane Lorena is located near latitude 19.6 north, longitude 105.0 west, approximately 70 miles southeast of Cabo Corrientes Mexico and 380 miles southeast of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The maximum sustained winds are currently at 75mph and moving north north westwards at 8mph. This wind speeds means it is a Category 1 hurricane according to the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Currently Lorena is predicted to reach speeds of 92mph, which would make the storm stronger Category 1 storm. The National Hurricane Center advisory reads: “Lorena is moving toward the north-northwest near 8mph (13kmh) but a gradual turn to the northwest and west-northwest is expected today and Friday. “On the forecast track, the centre of Lorena will continue moving near or over the southwestern coast of Mexico within the hurricane warning area today and move back over water later today or Friday. “Lorena is then expected to move away from the west-central coast of Mexico and approach southern Baja California Sur Friday night and Saturday. “Maximum sustained winds are near 7 mph (120kmh) with higher gusts. “Some weakening is expected today while the circulation is interacting with the high terrain. “Once Lorena moves over water again in 12 to 24 hours, re-strengthening is anticipated. “Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 10 miles (20km) from the centre and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130km).” The storm is expected to unleash torrential rainfall with coastal sections of the Mexican states of Michoacan, Colima and Kalisco seeing up to 15 inches of rainfall. This heavy rainfall may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides in these areas. Swells are also expected to impact the southwestern Mexican coast with life-threatening surf and rip currents a likely by-product of this storm. Elsewhere, there is one other hurricanes and three tropical storms whirling across the Atlantic and Pacific at the moment. Hurricane Humberto, located roughly 250 miles northeast of Bermuda, is generating storm surge and dangerous breaking waves which, while diminishing, could cause coastal flooding along the coast of Bermuda. Swells are continui
