miami - The hurricane Willa, which races towards the Pacific over Mexico, has increased in strength so far that it now falls into the highest category. The US National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami reports wind speeds of 260 kilometers per hour with highs. Willa lands in the course of Tuesday afternoon or evening (local time). That will be accompanied by abundant rainfall, up to 450 millimeters.
The Mexican states of Sinaloa and Nayarit have closed the schools in the coastal region and are busy setting up shelters and setting up reception centers. The state of Jalisco is also preparing. The island group Islas Marias, about a hundred kilometers from the coast, is the first to be threatened. The NHC considers it likely that the eye of the hurricane will pull over it.
