Tropical Storm Marty, formed this Monday in the Mexican Pacific from remnants of Hurricane Grace, is moving away from the Mexican coast.
The Tropical Storm Marty, formed Monday in the Mexican Pacific remnants from Hurricane Grace, moves away from the Mexican coast, on Monday the National Meteorological Service (SMN) reported.
Last week Grace was generated in the Atlantic and impacted in several states of the country, with a balance of 11 deaths, and although it degraded to low pressure while crossing the country, its remnants gave rise to Marty.

“The cloud bands of Tropical Storm Marty maintain the probability of heavy rains over Baja California Sur. This system maintains its westward movement away from Mexican coasts,” SMN said in a statement.
At 7:00 p.m. (00:00 GMT), the cyclone was located 550 kilometers west-southwest of Cabo San Lucas, in the northwestern Mexican state of Baja California Sur.
The phenomenon is moving at 24 kilometers per hour to the west and registers sustained winds of 75 kilometers per hour and gusts of up to 95 kilometers per hour, said the SMN.
The cyclone causes wind with gusts of 60 to 70 km / h and waves of 1 to 2 meters in height on the coast of Jalisco, wind with gusts of 50 to 60 km / h, and waves of 1 to 2 meters in height on the coast of Baja Southern California, the agency added.
Given this, the authorities called on the population of that region to take extreme precautions and comply with the recommendations of Civil Protection.

According to the Meteorological forecast, the cyclone will continue to advance westward this Tuesday as a tropical storm and in the early hours of Wednesday, it will degrade to a tropical depression when it is about 950 kilometers from Punta Eugenia, Baja California Sur.
REMNANT OF GRACE
The torrential rains generated by Grace last weekend caused the death of 11 people, eight in the eastern state of Veracruz and three in the central state of Puebla, in addition to heavy flooding and damage in Veracruz, a state that sits on the Gulf from Mexico.
Days before, it had impacted the Yucatan peninsula, where it also left floods and power failures, although without fatalities.
So far, cyclones Andrés, Blanca, Carlos, Dolores, Enrique, Felicia, Guillermo, Hilda, Ignacio, Jimena, Kevin, Linda and Marty have formed in the Pacific.
Dolores made landfall on June 19 and had a special impact on the states of Colima and Michoacán, leaving 3 dead due to electrical storms.
The National Water Commission (Conagua), on which the SMN depends, predicted last May the formation of between 14 and 20 named systems in the Pacific Ocean for this season, while for the Atlantic it predicted 15 to 19 meteorological phenomena.
#Marty was recently designated yesterday from the remnants of Grace as it moved through Mexico. It's likely beginning a weakening trend though and should become a rather short-lived system as conditions only get more hostile as it progresses westward. pic.twitter.com/fE5qs5KfND
