The tropical cyclone season continues to be active this summer. After the passage of Alberto, Mexican authorities are now keeping a close eye on Hurricane Beryl, which in a few hours quickly rose to category four.

Alert in Quintana Roo

The state of Quintana Roo has issued an alert phase due to the predicted trajectory of Beryl, which could approach the coasts between next Thursday and Friday. Since yesterday afternoon, the state government decreed the Blue alert in its approach phase, indicating a very low danger, since the phenomenon is more than 72 hours away from the coasts.

National Hurricane Center Report

According to yesterday’s 5:00 PM report from the National Hurricane Center, Category 4 Beryl continues to move rapidly westward at a speed of 30 kilometers per hour. Hurricane hunter aircraft flying within the system estimated maximum sustained winds to reach 215 kilometers per hour, with gusts up to 260 kilometers per hour.

The U.S. agency indicates that Beryl will remain extremely dangerous after making landfall in the Windward Islands this Monday. “As the hurricane moves through the Caribbean Sea, it is likely to gradually increase wind shear, which will induce a slow weakening trend,” the report mentions. However, it clarifies that the phenomenon will remain a significant hurricane during its passage through the Caribbean Sea region.

Preparations in Quintana Roo

The projected trajectory as of yesterday shows that Hurricane Beryl is heading towards the south and center of Quintana Roo. Despite this, in cities such as Cancun, some establishments were crowded. Regular shopping turned into panic buying, as some families decided to go ahead and prepare for possible changes in the announced trajectory.

The most demanded products were canned food and wooden planks, and vans loaded with these supplies were observed in the parking lots of several businesses.

For their part, Quintana Roo authorities have urged residents to stay informed through official sources and not to pay attention to rumors. Municipalities such as Tulum and Felipe Carrillo Puerto have already begun to distribute the addresses of their anticyclonic shelters, since they are in Beryl’s projected route, along with the city of Chetumal.

Beryl is expected to make landfall near Quintana Roo next Friday as a category 2 hurricane, bringing heavy rains to the west of the country.

It is essential that families and tourists in Quintana Roo remain alert and follow the recommendations of local authorities. Keeping informed through reliable sources is key to ensure everyone’s safety.
