The Tropical Storm that bore the epithet Simon picked up speed near Mexico’s Pacific coastal areas.

Just a little distance from the coast of Mexico, Tropical Storm Simon began to show its true colors. This natural calamity comes after about eighteen similar disasters have visited the region in the past. 

The present stormy conditions arise from rapidly changing winds, humid and muggy weather as well as a relatively hot sea temperature. And these situational trends appear to be ready to escalate their effects as time moves on. This storm will probably reach hurricane-like status some time today. 

It will travel slowly from the western towards the northwestern loci. Torrential rains are to be expected too. Floods and landslides could occur in certain regions such as Guerrero, Michoacan, Jalisco and Nayarit. 

The surf will be in the air and treacherous riptides will splash against the coasts. However, the locality known as Baja California will probably not bear the brunt of the storm. And even if it does, it will surely face a lukewarm version of the furious forces.   

The environs of Los Cabos will be facing the attack of the force of Nature though. Actually, the storm is to boomerang back into the Mexican waters. And that of course could mean trouble for the Baja Peninsula. 

That is why the indigenous inhabitants have been warned to be prepared. Those individuals looking for some beach combing and boating ought to be extra-vigilant. 

The rainfall expected to occur is from one to three inches which is not an insignificant amount. And as the rains hit the ground harder and the storm gets even rougher, there is bound to be some damage. 

Man is left helpless as Mother Nature razes so much of his efforts to the ground. By next week, things will have been ameliorated to a considerable extent. 

Till then the citizens of Mexico’s coastal areas have been instructed to take care and remain safe within the confines of their homes. The potency of the storm is something which is an unpredictable and freaky thing. So taking some precautions is of the essence.
