mazatlan - The authorities in Mexican coastal areas are preparing for the arrival of Hurricane Willa. The governor of the western state of Nayarit says that more than 10,000 people are being evacuated. Schools must close the doors.
The storm is expected to land on Tuesday and may then be accompanied by heavy rainfall. Governor Antonio Echevarría warns the population not to take unnecessary risks. 'Let's not play the macho or the superhero. It is a very powerful hurricane and we do not want tragic events. '
The preparations are in full swing in the coastal city of Mazatlán (Sinaloa). Several hotels have doors and windows shielded with wooden planks. There was a long line of cars at a gas station. People wanted to check their tank and store supplies at an adjacent supermarket.
Willa was previously a hurricane in the devastating fifth category, but now scaled back to category four.
