Bucerias Community June 2014 News
Hola Bucerias Community, Banderas Bay and beyond! Well! We certainly have had early rains in the Bucerias Community and Banderas Bay this season! All of the rivers and estuaries are flowing, including Bucerias. Please do not try to cross the river when it is flowing, as it can be very dangerous, even in your 4×4!
Unfortunately, this also means a lot of trash is flowing to the oceans, so please be sure to pick up the trash around your casa, even if its not yours! On the other side of it, the heavy rains are wonderful as they wash all of the dirt and dust off of everything, and although it brings in the humidity, it also leaves a fresher feeling all around, watering the jungles green once more. We have also had quite the lightning show over the bay!
A Class 5 hurricane has not made landfall on the Riviera Nayarit siince 2002, when Hurricane Kenna hit land with the epicenter about 255 mi southwest miles north of PV in San Blas. Marshall law was declared, according two long time residents Bob and Trish Shelton, and they made everyone leave the shore areas by gunpoint. Trish stated, “It seemed that they were not going to leave, so they had to force them out!”
Its unlikely that an “eye” of a class 5 hurricane will directly hit Puerto Vallarta, however, the waves were so huge from Kenna that as they came into the bay, and to the P.V. area, it wiped out the PV Malecon, and two blocks of stores up. Trish told me that she knew some diver friends that went diving afterwards to get a lot of the jewelry that had been washed out to the bay!
To quote Wikipedia “The worst of the hurricane’s effects occurred between San Blas in Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta in Jalisco, where over 100 people were injured and thousands of homes and businesses were damaged or destroyed. 95% of the buildings in San Blas were damaged, and hundreds of buildings were destroyed along coastal areas of Puerto Vallarta..”
Our beautiful Banderas Bay protects us, thank goodness, but we will always get the surf and surge from the hurricanes.
This information is not intended to create fear. We are very good about keeping each other informed in the Bucerias community, PV and along the Riviera Nayarit. It’s always a good idea to pay attention to the weather, like NOAA.gov or another source, It looks like its going to be quite the rainy season, being an El Nino year. So batten down the hatches and get prepared, and stay informed to make the best decisions. To find out more about Hurricane Kenna, just Google it!
