Hurricane Jova advances toward Mexico

Hurricane Jova roared towards Mexican coastline, threatening tourist resorts and flood-prone mountain villages on Tuesday night, prompting evacuations and shutting down one of the country’s top cargo ports.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As the storm’s outer bands of rain began hitting the coast, some vowed to ride out the storm, while others took refuge at shelters in towns such as Jaluco, just inland from the beach community of Barra de Navidad.

Jova was expected to hit the states of Nayarit, Jalisco and Colima the hardest. About 183,160 persons live in the centre of the storm’s projected path, said Laura Gurza, chief of the federal Civil Protection emergency response agency.
