Event: The U.S. Embassy advises U.S. citizens that Tropical Storm Rosa is likely to become a hurricane later today and a major hurricane on Thursday, September 27.  Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 60 miles from the center.  Swells generated by Rosa will affect portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico and the southern Baja California Peninsula late this week and over the weekend.  These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

At this time, neither the U.S. National Hurricane Center nor the Government of Mexico has issued a tropical storm watch.

Actions to Take:

  • Exercise caution if planning boating, surfing, or other water sports in the affected areas until the storm has dissipated.
  • Monitor the local news for updates.
  • Follow directions from local officials.
