Well many residents along the Pacific Coast of Mexico woke up to an unpleasant surprise this morning--a possible hurricane headed straight for their shorelines. Tropical Storm Carlotta is packing winds of 45 MPH and gradually strengthening as it slowly makes its way NW at 9 MPH. It is forecast to grow into a hurricane (that's right) and could be a significant one at that by the time it makes landfall along Mexico's southern coastline and then start to make an unusual turn back out to sea. Now's the time to prepare, dangerous hurricane conditions with powerful wind gusts possibly up to 115 MPH can occur with Carlotta in the Manzanillo area. I'll have an update later today or tomorrow morning.
