According to the Civil Defense, these will have the capacity to protect almost 21 thousand people in case they need it.

On the other hand, the NMS monitors a low pressure area off the coast of Colima and Michoacan in the Pacific Ocean, which increased its probability for cyclonic development to 50 percent to 48 hours.

It moves northwest at a speed between 16 and 24 kilometers per hour, the agency of the National Water Commission (Conagua) said.

When this area of low pressure interacts with instability in high levels of the atmosphere, it will cause very strong rains to intense points accompanied by electric discharges in the west and south of the Mexican territory, in addition to strong gusts of wind, high swell and possible formation of marine waterspouts on the coasts of Guerrero, Michoacán and Colima.

At the same time, tropical wave 7 will approach the southeast of the country, interacting with the inflow of moisture from the Pacific Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea, causing heavy to intense point rainfall with electric discharges in that region, as well as showers in the Yucatan Peninsula.
