By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Sunday evening, Bonnie strengthened to a Category 1 Hurricane, becoming the third hurricane of the 2022 Pacific Hurricane Season.
According to the National Hurricane Center in Miami, hurricane Bonnie strengthened just as it moved off the southwest coast of Mexico and is now packing maximum sustained winds of 80 miles per hour.
On Friday evening, Bonnie made landfall as a tropical storm near the Nicaragua- Costa Rica border, dropping heavy rains across the region before crossing over to the Pacific on Saturday.
Massive inundations were reported in El Salvador and Nicaragua. At least one death has been reported in El Salvador.
Forecasters say that Bonnie could strengthen to a Category 2 tonight with winds of up to 110 miles per hour as it travels near the coast of Mexico before moving away from the coastline.
Mexican authorities urge their residents to remain alert and prepared as heavy rains and strong winds are possible near the southern Pacific coast.
