Category 1 hurricane Nora, downgraded Sunday as a “tropical storm”, hit the coast of the state of Jalisco (western Mexico) killing 1 and missing 1.

The state government of Jalisco said a Spanish teenager died Saturday night when a hotel partially collapsed in Puerto Vallarta amid severe flooding when Nora passed through the tourist town as a hurricane de Category 1. A woman also disappeared there after her car was taken away. Authorities said flooding damaged 500 homes and two people were injured in a landslide. Six fishermen from Guerrero state were reported missing at sea. The governor of Jalisco said the missing woman in Puerto Vallarta had been lost when the flowing waters dragged her out of her car and swept her away

In Puerto Vallarta, two rivers overflowed during the storm and flooded part of downtown. A torrent of water broke a bridge and washed away part of a small four-story boutique hotel

Nora caused damage in Jalisco overnight, especially in Cihuatlan where some 500 houses had been affected by the overflow of the El Pedregal stream in San Patricio, Melaque y Villa Obregon. Authorities in Jalisco had called on residents to stay home, and Puerto Vallarta International Airport was closed. Fifteen shelters have been set up and rescuers deployed to help the populations.

Demoted “tropical storm”, Nora is still moving “to the northwest, near the coast of west-central Mexico,” said the American Hurricane Center (NHC), causing “heavy rains and floods.”

This Sunday at 18:00 GMT, Nora was 135 km from Mazatlán (Sinaloa) and 300 km from Cape Saint Luc (Baja California), said the NHC, moving northwest at 20 km / h with winds up to 110 km / h, according to the same source. Nora will continue her journey over the next few days “along the coasts of Mexico and very close to them”.
