MEXICO CITY ( Associated Press) – Hurricane Roslin is expected to gain slightly more strength on Saturday as it moves toward the Pacific coast of Mexico and makes landfall near the tourist destination of Puerto Vallarta.

The US National Hurricane Center (NHC) reported Friday night that the storm had maximum sustained winds of 85 mph (140 kph).

They said its vortex was about 410 kilometers (255 mi) south of Cabo Corrientes, which made landfall in the Pacific south of Puerto Vallarta, and had a speed of 11 km/h (7 mph) west- was moving towards the north-west.

According to the weather forecast, Roslin will begin moving first to the north and then northeast, allowing it to approach Cabo Corrientes and Puerto Vallarta on Saturday night or Sunday morning.

On October 3, about 75 kilometers (45 mi) to the southeast, Hurricane Orlin made landfall in roughly the same area.

Hurricane-force winds from the meteor extend to a radius of 30 kilometers (15 mi) from its vortex, while tropical-force winds have reached as far as 110 kilometers (70 mi) away.

Mexico issued a hurricane watch for an extension of the coastline from Playa Perula in the south of Cabo Corrientes to El Roblito and Islas Marías in the north.

Mexico’s National Water Commission said rain thrown by Roslin could cause landslides and flooding, and the NHC warned of a potentially dangerous storm surge along the coast.
