Tropical Storm Bud

Tropical Storm Bud

Should this become the second tropical system of the season, and strengthens beyond depression strength, it would be named Beryl.

At 1300 GMT, Bud was 380 kilometers (235 miles), southwest of Manzanillo, packing sustained winds of 185 kilometers (115 miles) an hour, Mexico's national weather service said.

The second Eastern North Pacific hurricane of the season is whipping up 120 miles per hour winds but moving at a glacial pace of about 7 miles per hour.

Although authorities established a surveillance zone to follow the trajectory of the hurricane northward along Mexico's western coast, there were no evacuations of tourist spots like Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas. The worst drought in the U.S.is in the Southwest, with the most severe conditions in Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado.

Hurricane Bud is the sequel to last week's Hurricane Aletta, which was eventually downgraded to a tropical storm.

Torrential downpours could cause "life-threatening" flash floods, mudslides and waves along coastal areas in Mexico, the NHC said. In addition, ocean swells generated by Bud will continue to affect portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico during the next few days.

NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP flew over Hurricane Bud at about 4:45 a.m. EDT (0845 UTC) on June 11 and captured a night-time image of the storm.

El Niño could also put a damper on the Atlantic hurricane season.

But the official forecast from the hurricane center said that no tropical storms or hurricanes are forecast to develop in the next five days. With tropical systems, it's best to prepare for the worst-case scenario - just in case.
