Event:  The U.S. Embassy advises U.S. citizens that Hurricane Bud is expected to continue moving north along the western coast of Mexico. The Mexican Metrological Service issued a Tropical Storm Watch for the west coast of Mexico from Manzanillo to Cabo Corrientes.  Hurricane Bud is expected to produce rainfall amounts of three to six inches across much of southwestern Mexico, with isolated maximum amounts of 10 inches into Tuesday afternoon, June 12.  This rainfall could cause life-threatening flash floods and mud slides.  Swells generated by Hurricane Bud will continue to affect portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico during the next few days. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area beginning this afternoon.
