Kay becomes a hurricane off Mexico

Mexico City, Sep 6 (Prensa Latina) Kay has become a category 1 hurricane and its center is 495 kilometers southwest of Manzanillo, Colima, but heavy rains in Nuevo Leon at the other end of the Pacific Ocean killed four people on Tuesday.

A report from the National Meteorological Service (SMN) said that Kay has maximum sustained winds of 130 kilometers per hour (km/h), gusts of 155 km/h, and was moving west-northwest at 17 km/h.

It warned that in the next few hours torrential rains of 150 to 250 millimeters will be registered in Colima, Michoacan, Nayarit and Sinaloa; intense rains of 75 to 150 mm in Jalisco; and very heavy rainfalls of 50 to 75 mm in Guerrero. The hurricane is threatening more than 10 states in Mexico with heavy rains that will bring floods and overflowing rivers.

Nuevo Leon, a state affected by severe drought until a few weeks ago, is now subjected to severe flooding in Monterrey and its metropolitan area due to heavy rains that have already killed four people in Cadereyta, due to an overflowing creek.

About 100 homes were damaged and at least 200 people were evacuated, while 20 vehicles were stranded. Classes were suspended throughout the state.

In the state of Sinaloa, education was also interrupted due to the effects of Hurricane Kay.
