Intensifying Hurricane Willa Headed Directly Toward 10,000 Migrant Caravan Path

Update 10/22: Hurricane Willa, as reported by the National Hurricane Center, is now a Category 5 hurricane.

It appears that the migrant caravan, which has been reported to upward of 10,000 strong, might run into some extra trouble on their march to seek American asylum. A massive hurricane (named Willa) is set to cross the path that the migrants will eventually cross.

There’s also a slightly smaller disturbance named Vincente to the south of Willa that meteorologists say will be consumed by the massively growing Willa, but will still pose a threat for dangerous conditions for the caravan, which has already seen its fair share of struggles with food, sanitation and organization.

Weather.com reports:

Hurricane Willa has rapidly intensified into a dangerous Category 4 hurricane and is expected to strengthen further early this week. Damaging winds, flooding rain and a potentially destructive storm surge will threaten Mexico’s Pacific coastline by midweek.

Tropical Storm Vicente also poses a heavy rain threat to Mexico in the week ahead.

Willa is tracking north-northwestward but is expected to slowly recurve toward the north Monday and the north-northeast by Tuesday. It should approach landfall along the southwestern coast of mainland Mexico by late Tuesday, which is expected to occur anywhere from near or north of Mazatlán to near Puerto Vallarta.

Hurricane Willa’s maximum sustained winds increased by 55 mph in the 24 hours ending 5 p.m. EDT Sunday. Willa’s winds increased by an additional 25 mph during the following three hours from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. EDT Sunday.

As the caravan heads north, there’s no doubt that they’ll eventually run into deteriorating conditions leftover from Willa — which we’ll soon see what level of damage it imposes upon populated areas of Mexico. The strain on resources in many areas of Mexico is already bad — let alone the possibility of being hit by a major hurricane and a large army of hungry migrants.[Image of probabilities of 34-kt winds]

Yeah - well to the west of the route the caravan will likely take. And the remnants will be moving fairly quickly which means little if any flooding into North Central Mexico.

I live thousands of miles from Florida, and I still got the rain and winds from the last hurricane.

I wouldn’t want to walking in that weather.

I guess George Soros will have to send some big bucks putting them up in hotel rooms and feeding them.

The hurricane will be ripped apart by the high mountains it encounters. You cannot compare a hurricane moving up the East Coast to a Pacific hurricane moving across Central Mexico.

This is the track of another Cat 5 East Pac hurricane from 2015. Notice how quickly it dissipates.

That is a lot of busses

Unless they are only going to bus a few hundred for the photo opp and not the whole “10 thousand” that they are claiming.

All they need is the picture of a para military man with a rifle pointing at a poor immigrant child and the Dims win on the 6th

Heck they probably already have the photo already made....

Apparently Trump got ahold of one of those old Rove weather machines.

Post 11 shows the track of a weakening, transient weather system that will be long gone when the caravan moves through.

if it slows them down till after the election, that would be a positive for President Trump

After all, this is purely a pre-arranged political stunt, arranged to come to a head immediately before the election. This is not a coincidence at all.

An unexpected force, like a hurricane, delayed it until after the election, it would mean the PR stunt was a failure. Mexico, who is complicit in this, would simply pull the plug on the venture, and round up the stragglers and ship them back. We would never hear of it again.

Well - it says high winds and rain in that area. Hopefully it will wipe out some bridges and the electrical grid to slow down their progress for awhile.

“Hopeful and innocent”??? If these invaders cross the border of America illegally, they should be shot.

hurricane Willa is going to hit the coast in less than 24 hours and it’s a looong way north of where the caravan is. To put it into geographical perspective, if the caravan were in Los Angelis, the huricane would be hitting closer to Oregon or Washington.

Also, these people will get better shelter (DNC money? soros money? who is pimping this?) than most locals would anyway
