Hurricane Jova gathers momentum

Hurricane Jova,is now a “major category 3” hurricane and is presently heading to the east-northeast and is expected to turn toward the northeast tonight.
Jova is forecast to make landfall over southwest Mexico tomorrow morning New Zealand time as a major (category 3 or stronger) hurricane. Impacts will be felt as early as overnight tonight depending on its speed.

Hurricane warnings have been issued for southwest Mexico and necessary precautions have been put in place and this may involve evacuations.

Warm water is helping feed Jova and there is a chance that this hurricane could strengthen further before it makes landfall.

It is coming towards the end of the hurricane season however October is known for late season storms and it appears that Jova may not be the last.

Isn’t bit unusual to have a Hurricane hitting the West Coast?

Thanks for getting in touch.

It does happen from time to time but we haven’t seen it often lately.
