    Tropical Depression Two- E

    May 31, 2017



    The U.S. Embassy cautions U.S. citizens that Tropical Depression Two-E is expected to strengthen and should approach or move over the Pacific coast of Mexico on Friday, June 2. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has issued a Tropical Storm Watch for the Pacific coast of Mexico from Salina Cruz to Puerto Escondido. Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Slow strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and the depression could become a tropical storm on Thursday, June 1. The depression is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 8 to 12 inches across the Mexican state of Oaxaca with isolated maximum totals of 20 inches possible. These rainfall amounts may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.

    All U.S. citizens living in or traveling to the area should monitor local weather reports, the Mexican government’s civil protection (“Protección Civil”) website http://www.proteccioncivil.gob.mx, follow directions from local officials, and take other appropriate actions as needed.
