Miami, Oct 3 (EFE News) .- Gamma touches Mexican lands: Tropical storm Gamma made landfall this Saturday near Tulum, on the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula (in Mexico).

It could cause significant damage due to its significant rainfall and maximum sustained winds of about 110 kilometers per hour (70 miles per hour).

The center of the tropical storm reached the Mexican coast at 11:45 local time (12:45 EST) with winds very close to those of a hurricane, starting at 119 kilometers per hour or 74 m / h, highlighted the National Hurricane Center (NHC , in English)

In a previous newsletter, experts indicated that the twenty-fourth tropical storm of the current hurricane season in the Atlantic basin could turn towards the north-northwest and head into the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, where it would regain part of the strength that it will lose in the next few hours while on land.

Although Gamma has strengthened, its biggest threat remains torrential rains, floods and landslides, especially near and above mountainous terrain, they noted.

Gamma touches Mexican land: This rainfall could result in life-threatening flash floods and landslides, particularly in the mountainous regions of southeastern Mexico and Central America.

With two months to go until the end of the 2020 hurricane season (November 30), 23 named storms have formed, lending credence to the “extremely active” 2020 season forecast by the National Oceans and Atmosphere Administration (NOAA). ) from USA

NOAA expects between 19 and 25 named tropical storms this year, which means they have winds of 63 kilometers per hour, of which seven to eleven could become hurricanes, with winds of 119 kilometers per hour, with up to six very powerful

It had been previously reported that this tropical storm was expected to make landfall very soon, as it continued to strengthen as it approached the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, where it made landfall this Saturday with maximum sustained winds of about 100 kilometers. per hour (65 miles per hour).

Gamma touches Mexican lands: This direction caused it to hit the Yucatan coast throughout this Saturday and to be located on the north coast of this Mexican peninsula on Sunday.

It will make landfall with winds exceeding 100 km / h recorded by the US “hurricane hunter” aircraft, although the tropical storm would later begin to weaken before entering the waters of the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday afternoon.

However, forecasters forecast that Gamma, whose tropical-storm-force winds extend up to 130 kilometers from its center, would not pick up much force once back over the sea.

Thus, Gamma would only generate maximum sustained winds of up to 80 kilometers per hour after it exits the Gulf of Mexico again, so its greatest danger will not be in the winds but in the rains.

“The greatest threat from this large and slow storm is potential heavy rain and flooding, particularly near and over mountainous terrain,” warned the National Hurricane Center.

This threat looms over part of the Yucatán Peninsula, the western tip of Cuba, and the Mexican states of Campeche, Tabasco, and northern Chiapas.
