Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Mexico City (Mexico), Hurricane Dora

The U.S. Embassy cautions U.S. citizens that Hurricane Dora is expected to produce life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Swells generated by Dora are currently affecting portions of the coast of southwest Mexico and by Tuesday, June 27, parts of the coast of the southern Baja California peninsula will be affected. Dora is projected to remain offshore and produce rain accumulations of 1 to 2 inches along coastal sections of the Mexican states of Guerrero and Michoacan through June 26.

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