Storm To Drench Mid-Atlantic & East Coast; May Turn Into A Nor’easter On Halloween Weekend
“Operations in the destination can return to normal,” it stated in a press release to the media.
“Puerto Vallarta’s tourism infrastructure — including Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport, which has remained open; trans-national roads; and the marina, cruise port, and Pier Los Muertos, which provides access to areas south of Puerto Vallarta such as Yelapa — will return to normal operations,” the Mexico resort’s press release stated.
“City services will also be back to normal, including schools and garbage collection. Cleaning crews and public works and public services personnel have begun the work of clearing debris left by the high winds and waves.”
According to Adrian Bobadilla, head of Civil Protection and Puerto Vallarta’s Fire Department, a total of 587 tourists and 62 locals were housed in city shelters because they were in high-risk areas, mostly around local bodies of water. He also mentioned that many locals opted to stay with family members while some hotels conducted voluntary evacuations according to their own contingency plans.
Willa, tho, is still a powerful storm and is going to responsible for heavy rain in the USA’s Mid-Atlantic and East Coast areas. The fast-moving storm will create a “potent and disruptive nor’easter with gusty coastal winds, drenching rain and high-elevation snow” Friday and Saturday night, according to AccuWeather senior meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.
This, of course, could play havoc with parties and events on Halloween weekend. But not the World Series which, after having the first two games at Fenway Park, moves to Dodger Stadium where the first-pitch temperature will be 85 degrees. The Red Sox lead the Dodgers two games to zero.
