Tropical cyclones

Meteorologist Cornejo indicated that the great hurricane Laura, which will hit the United States, will generate a surface drag , which will cause the meteorological systems of the Pacific to gradually approach the coast.

Especially for the southeastern states of Mexico, the intertropical convergence zone is very close , which will attract large amounts of rainfall. 

For this area of ​​the Bay of Banderas, he warned of two cyclones, which will gradually approach , now they are tropical depressions 13 and 14. 

“Then they will take their path that normally occurs as cyclones in this season, they will recur and gradually move away, therefore it is not contemplated to impact the coastal area.”

However, he pondered: “There is a tropical wave, low pressure systems attached to the coast, and without a doubt they are going to leave large amounts of water, from Chiapas to Nayarit
