Update 2 on hurricane Willa

During the night between Tuesday and Wednesday CDT, hurricane Willa made landfall on the west coast of Mexico in the state of Sinaloa as a category 3 hurricane. As the hurricane weakened and the central pressure increased prior to landfall, no cat bond is affected by the event.

Increasing wind shear and the mountainous terrain of the region has caused further rapid weakening of the hurricane and it is today a tropical depression over central Mexico, without storm force winds. Though the hurricane weakened before landfall, a category 3 hurricane still poses great threats to life and property in affected areas, but there are not yet any reports on the coastal impact available.

With this message, Entropics stops monitoring Willa.
