Due to the proximity and strength of hurricane "Roslyn" with category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson scale, the port authorities decided to close all activities at sea.

The Administration of the National Port System (Asipona) of Puerto Vallarta informed that the total closure of the port to all types of navigation and vessels, both inside and outside the Bay of Banderas, has been notified, as the hurricane intensified to category 4.

This, after the port had been closed to navigation outside the Bay of Banderas since six o'clock this Saturday morning and it had been announced that it would be until 4:00 p.m. when it would be closed to all types of navigation.

However, due to the strength of the hurricane in a few hours, Victor Uribe Arevalo, director of Asipona Puerto Vallarta, informed that the port would be totally closed before noon.

The closure was confirmed at a press conference held at the UNIRSE facilities in Fluvial Vallarta with different Civil Protection corporations from the three levels of government, where they announced the preventive measures to be taken in the face of the hurricane.


It is worth remembering that the head of the Municipal Unit of Civil Protection and Firefighters of Puerto Vallarta, Gerardo Castillon Andrade, informed that beaches are expected to be closed as of 6:00 p.m. this Saturday, since the yellow flag will be maintained during the day.

At the same time, the Jalisco state government confirmed that in the case of the beaches, "it is reported that they will remain closed during Saturday 22nd and conditions will be evaluated for the following days".

The prevention zone for the effects of Hurricane Roslyn with category 4 remains in place from Playa Pérula, Jalisco, to El Roblito, Nayarit, including the Marías Islands.

Rainfall could cause landslides, increased river and stream levels, overflows and flooding in low-lying areas.
