“Due to its wide circulation, very heavy localized rains, ranging from 50 to 75 millimeters, are expected in Coahuila, Nuevo León, and Tamaulipas. These mentioned precipitations could generate flooding and waterlogging,” the SMN indicated.

In the latest report, Beryl was located as a Category 1 hurricane 70 kilometers north-northeast of Matagorda, 65 kilometers southwest of Houston, and 405 kilometers north-northeast of Matamoros.

The hurricane has maximum sustained winds of 120 kilometers per hour, gusts of 150 kilometers per hour, and is moving north at 19 kilometers per hour. Wind gusts of 40 to 60 kilometers per hour and waves of 1 to 2 meters high are expected on the northern coast of Tamaulipas.

Mexico feared the impact of Beryl, the first hurricane of the season, which has set an “alarming precedent” as a cyclone of maximum intensity had never formed in the Atlantic at this time of year, according to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) last week.

However, Beryl, which left more than a dozen deaths in its wake across Caribbean islands, did not cause any deaths in Mexico and only caused minor infrastructure damage in Quintana Roo, the country’s main tourist destination.

Of the three cyclones that have occurred this Atlantic season, Beryl is the third to impact Mexico. Storm Chris entered on June 30, and Storm Alberto, on June 20, left six dead in Nuevo León, a state on Mexico’s northern border.
