Franklin - We Got A Storm!

Torrential rains predicted for Guerrero. After a light rain most of the morning things have turned more serious in the past hour. I don't recommend driving if it can be avoided. Make sure whatever drains on your roof, patio, terrace or yard are cleared of debris and keep an eye on the weather and your neighbors. It's expected to get worse.

Which forecast are you looking at? The biggish rain lasted 15 minutes and NOAA says Franklin has completely dissipated near CDMX and they will be issuing no more reports. And it is almost sunny now. If bad is coming I would like to know but my sites say nada.B-)

I was simply relaying the alerts from multiple Mexican weather and news sources. Glad you had a nice pleasant day, but a lot of folks didn't. No loss of life reported from the storm in our region that I've heard of yet, but many homes were damaged, some roads washed out, and I expect more damages will be reported in the coming days, especially from remote regions in the sierra. We dodged a bullet, but a lot of folks didn't.
