Hurricane Roslyn makes landfall in Mexico and avoids resorts


Hurricane Roslyn slammed into a sparsely populated stretch of Mexico’s Pacific coast between the resort towns of Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlan, and quickly moved inland.

Sunday morning Roslyn remained a major hurricane with winds of 120 mph, down slightly from its peak of 130 mph.

The US National Hurricane Center said Roslyn was about 90 km northwest of Tepic, the inland capital of Nayarit state.

The hurricane is expected to lose strength as it moves further inland. Although he missed a direct hit, Roslyn brought heavy rain and high waves to Puerto Vallarta.
