Residents of the beach resort town of Puerto Vallarta in Jalisco state were left clearing up the mess left by tropical storm Nora on Sunday.
Flooding, caused by heavy rain and winds, led to the overflowing of a local river and resulted in various damages to infrastructure and private property throughout the city.
The storm has claimed the life of a child, following the partial collapse of a building.
“The streets are clogged, the water has nowhere to go, my truck was ruined, the water reached the canopy, up until the roof, and as always, the people are doing what they can,” stated local resident Bernardo Invers.
Nora has shown signs of weakening on Sunday, having previously been monitored as a category one hurricane.
SOT, Bernardo Invers, Local resident (Spanish): “Well, look at the bad effect it has had, the streets are clogged, the water has nowhere to go, my truck was ruined, the water reached the canopy, up until the roof, and as always, the people are doing what they can.”
SOT, Carlos Trejo, Local resident (Spanish): “No, this incident is the average difficult thing, but here we are.”
SOT, Carlos Trejo, Local resident (Spanish): “Yes, eloquently, if they were considerable losses, we are going to have to wait and see what happens, rebuild things ourselves, there is no other choice.”
