Playa del Carmen, Q.R. – Weather in Playa del Carmen over the past 24 hours has been vicious enough to tear out trees and topple large billboard ads from around the city.
The damage is the result of a large zone of instability that stretched to the middle of the state.
The large mass of low pressure was reason for the Civil Protection to coordinate several work crews to assist the Nicte areas like Ha, Luis Donaldo Colosio Murrieta and subdivisions located west of Playa del Carmen in a massive cleanup.
According to Guillermo Morales Lopez, head of the agency, wind guests of up to 60 mph were recorded on Sunday in Playa del Carmen. He said that Civil Protection warned of a 60 percent chance of cyclone activity until the system moved off across the Yucatan Peninsula and into the Gulf of Mexico.
According to the weather issued by weather specialist Antonio Morales Ocana, Sunday was filled with persistent rain accompanied by winds of 15-25 mph, gusting to 40. Strong wind gusts were the cause of the local ports being closed another day.
According to data provided by the Civil Protection, the storm caused three short circuits in electricity, five fallen trees, two downed poles and several faults in Internet service.
Civil Protection personnel continue to work in the affected areas.
