- Tropical Wave?

Good morning.  It seems that the Maya Riviera is finally experiencing rainy season.  We have had rain somewhere along our coastline most days for the last 10 days or so, with several rainy nights.  Now it is pouring, heavy tropical downpour from a system that moved in from the southwest.  No discussion of this by the weather forecasters, but it's pretty heavy rain.  Hope you aren't on vacation here today.  It's great for my new plants that finally got planted yesterday, though.

- Diving Conditions in Cozumel after Ivan

Hi there Joanna,

Thanks for the E-mail.  After Ivan passed close by on Monday evening,
Tuesday the winds were still pretty strong.  But we were all basically able
to take the boards down and start the clean-up.  Wednesday was the first day
for our dive boats to go out.  And everyone reported in that there was no
damage done to the reefs at all.  Currents are normal, no sand on the reef,
and visibility was at least 100 ft.  So, we are back in business !

Happy Diving 000~(:)-)

Hello all,
I received several personal  Emails wishing us all well here in CanCun and I appreciate the kind words.
Today is September 15th the prelude to the festivities of Independence day Tomorrow. A federal holiday with schools closed tomorrow and Friday
The best way to describe CanCun right now is"Business as Usual"!
The beaches may have more seaweed, (which is in the process of being cleaned up) than normal but other than that there was no major structural damage along the coast.
We are generally in the slow season for Sept., Oct., and Nov., which I enjoy because it is not as crazy as when we have 100% occupancy.
So come on down. There should be plenty of sunshine and cool drinks...

Reporting in from Cozumel -
For some unexplainable reason, as of yet, Cozumel has not seen any hurricane action.  And Ivan came right by us !!!  Winds are up and have been for about 3 hours when they shifted from the N to the WNW.  On the leeward side, waves were about 4-6 feet.  We were not allowed to travel to the windward side of the island today, but the waves were up to about 10 feet or so yesterday, Sunday.  If any of you have been in Cozumel during a norte, this is a really strong one.  Other than that, we are just thankful that as of right now, it seems that we have been blessed and have missed the worst.  And as I finish this E-mail, gusts of winds are getting just a bit stronger.  With each gust, the lighst are flickering.  But, still there and the phones still up.
Happy Diving 000~(:)-)

Subject: Update on the Tulum beach area.

I just came from Tulum this morning as we went to investigate the damages if 

The section of road between Zamas and Maya Tulum is open again.  They back 
filled it.
Zamas had lots of plant damage, beach erosion in some parts and beach growth in 
others.  Maya Tulum looked like they were in clean up mode.

Posada Margerita will be open tomorrow.  The hotel is fine.  They lost some 
palapas on the beach and a bit of the dune, but over all they gained beach 

Ana y Joses they had sand and water up to the front of their beach front units 
but no damage.  The spa will be closed for a week while they dig out the sand.

The road from Maya Tulum south towards Sian Kaan is in good shape.

Vita y Bella, lost a bit of their restaurant which was built on the primary 

Tankah and Soliman Bay between Akumal and Tulum.  Both bays are fine, and the 
properties are ok.  Some gained beach, others lost a bit.

Akumal everyone and everything is fine.

More on the rest of the coast as we find out.  We will have photos on our 
message board tonight at www.locogringo.com

  • Date: Tue, 14 Sep 2004 10:04:09 -0500


As today Sept 14, Ivan missed Tulum. High tides with waves of about 10 ft. were all the impact of the feared Ivan. Winds were not gusty at al. Cloudy skies remain today and not even a lot of rain fell the previous day.  We have been lucky skipping the past three years hurricanes starting with letter "I" , Iris two years ago, Isidoro last year and Ivan in the present.  Season is not over so we all be watching future developments.

The tourist industry has not been affected at all, everyone that was vacationing here while Ivan made a close pass will be returning home , happy, suntanned and dry.

Hi I am in Akumal Mexico about 30 minutes south of Playa del Carmen, 1 hr south of Cancun. 

We had just a little wind and rain from Ivan.  Much of our town boarded up but the storm passed without incident.  I had heard that a section of road washed out between Zamas and Maya Tulum resorts, but the sea has always been right up to the road so it is no surprise.

Also there are reports of sections of the coconut road between Tulum and Punta Allen being under water or filled with a couple feet of sand, so people are having a hard time getting back to Tulum.

Nice website, thanks for the info.

Looks like we survied just fine here. Tide is still above normal this morningn, but we definitly dodged any major damage other than the piers being mostly destroyed.  Slight wind this morning, little rain fall from the storm.  Too early to asses beach erosion due to the high tides.  The slight turn of the eye to the NW fron WNW made a major differnce in Ivan's effect on us.  Will try to get out and around the surrounding beaches to assess any other damage.

  • Date: Mon, 13 Sep 2004 15:01:56 -0700 (PDT)
Hi~I'm writing from Paamul, 15 minutes south of Playa del Carmen, right across the channel from Cozumel.  We've been expecting Ivan all day, but so far he's a no-show.  We have light breezes with an occasional light gust, mixed overcast and sun, and an occasional shower.  I've measured 1" of rain over the last 24 hours - most of that in a downpour last evening.  It sounds like areas north of us, such as Puerto Morelos, Cancun, Isla Mujeres and Holbox, are being affected by the storm, but we have been very fortunate.  There's a little beach erosion, normal for any storm off the ocean.  The ocean is flat, small waves, no whitecaps.  We'll be on alert for another 16-24 hours as the eye passes through the Yucatan channel; it's possible the bands trailing to the south of the eye could affect us if the NNW motion continues.  Good luck to Cubanas and the gulf coast.

14:15 hrs. Just came back from a meeting at the local Red Cross, all the volunteers as well as the usual EMT´s are ready and on call.
If need be the ambulances will be exchanged for armored trucks, COMETRA a local security company has graciously offered some. Turicun, one of the city bus companies loaned two buses, one to be used to transport Red Cross families and/or personnel to and from base and refuges, and another to be used as a moving health center.
The airport closed finally at a little past 13:00  after trying to keep it open a while longer. Even though the hotel zone, hotels and locals are ready to evacuate it has not been done, we are expecting the worst to come around 18:00 hrs and hopefully, only TS winds of 45 kts maximum.
The winds are actually nice and some sunlight is peeking through the cloud covering trying to see what´s going on... not much of rain but this was to be expected as we are on the side with more wind and less rain of the hurricane
There is a shortage of bottled water as everybody that could bought more than their usual share.
Isla Mujeres tourists have been evacuated and some of the locals are refusing to move, as expected. The navy is trying to help over there in crossing and convincing people to leave (fat chance! they have riden worse storms at home)
Downtown  most houses have tape on their windpws and some, specially on the ones lokkin on the sea side, are covered with wood panels.
As the course of the "tal ivan"*  is zigging and zagging we can only hoe that this time the zag (or zig) will keep it due NW and won´t be making a sharp turn to the W.
* for those of you who speak spanish, the joke is that Al Qaeda sent the hurricane, proof? it´s name; tal ivan... (that ivan, pronounced taliban ;)

Hi. I live in Puerto Morelos, QR, Mexico, located on the water halfway
between Cancun & Playa Del Carmen. Currently (1300) the town is under an
mandatory evacuation order and the beach is basically non existent.  Wave
outside the barrier reef appear to have wave faces of 15-20 feet.  Little
rain or wind so far.

Hello all,
It is 1320 Local here in CanCun.
There have been light winds and rains throughout the day. It is currently sunny and  nice. I just returned from the Puerto Juarez beach area. The fishing and shrimping fleet has gone and all of the small ponga type boats have been moved to higher ground. I saw one boat drifting off in the distance. There was actually surf in the bay of Isle Mujeres where the depth is no deeper than 15 meters/45 feet.
Cable and Internet went off for about a half hour a little while ago. The super market was busy as was the bank. The gas stations were normal. There is already several feet of beach erosion. Private boats are all being trailered from the hotel zone. I have seen news cast and it looks like the tourist are walking around and reacting like this is an over cast day. I wonder If the Miami herald CanCun edition made it to them yet?
We get FOX on cable but since it is not an immediate threat they are not devoting very much time to our area. Geraldo in Key West must be hurt.LOL
Airport closed at 1000 I believe but cannot confirm.
All schools are out and the buildings will be used as shelters.
The military has made its presence known throughout the city.
Thats about all for know.
Keep the faith,

Hello there,
The government issued a hurricane warning yesterday afternoon, school is out at least for monday (children are very happy!) everybody has taken out their boats and there was a big activity from the city cutting and pruning as well as getting the refuges ready (most of them are schools)
sailboats have been taken to Isla Mujeres or away already since yesterday .
Red Cross sent its disaster coordinator from Mexico city  and there is already a plan for emergency aid in progress.
The thing is that today is Gilberto´s anniversary, remember the hurricane class 6, 13 years ago?
Our city has grown with people from the central part of mexico who have NO idea of what a hurricane can do, but the good part is that the mayor( back in office after a bad scrape) is making himself very useful. The state governor Hendrix offered  help as well and  the army is ready with field kitchens and so. Most hotels have their assigned refuges ready and have evacuation plans.
Hope it DOES pass through the channel...

From Cozumel.....

We are now under a Hurricane warning.......finally and the harbour is 
closed.  The last ferry to the mainland was yesterday at noon.....

Right now we have pretty regular T-storm type winds with some light 
gusts......This will obviously change.  The sunshine is very deceiving and 
there are many people and places open for business like nothing is 

We can see the storm on the horizon and it appears that the eye and most of 
the strong winds will be hitting us sometime today and into the evening.  
There are week bands of showers passing over but not alot of rain to speak 
of yet....

I will keep you posted as the day continues.....

Good morning from Playa Del Carmen,
After a restless nice we awoke to an eerie calm.  Thiere is absolutely no wind at all but there are some huge waves rolling in.  I understand that the Mex Goverment has finally issued a Hurricane warning but here in Playa Del Carmen it seem like life as usually.  I see people walking to work and going on as normal.  If you've ever read the book called Issacs Storm I seem simularities.  I really hope that the officials start to notify the people here as there are many that live in less then idea housing and many areas will be devistated if and when Ivan continues towards us.  
From all the models I've seen, we should be experiencing tropical storm winds by.  We are preparing to drive south down the coast and to get away from the eye and the beach.  I finally got through by cell phone to Grand Cayman shortly after 3am last night and my sister told me GO!! DO NOT STAY!!  She said it was horrifying and they are happy to be alive.  So we will head out shortly as we have two young children and would never put them in harms way.
I will report until we leave.  Prayer to everyone in this area and the Western tip of cuba

It is 0400 Local and it seems like the government has finally woken up and realized that the Yucatan Peninsula is indeed a possibility for landfall of Ivan. At 0330 the Police were driving around my neighborhood encouraging residents to evacuate with there papers to shelters located on higher ground. I also noticed several people leaving there homes with valuables. No one seems to be resting. Have heard that the CanCun international airport will shut down services at 1000, however cannot confirm that? Schools are to be closed tommorow.
The Sky's are clear. Not to much wind. The tip of Cuba is only 130 miles away so irregardless of where Ivan pass's it will effect us with its Cat. 5 winds.

It is 3am and I'm finding it difficult to sleep.
How close does Ivan need to come to us below any of the weather prediction centers realize that we seem to be the prime target and not Cuba?  I can hear the thundering surf but will not be able to see anything until morning but currently there is only a little wind.  Must be the so called "calm before the storm".  I see the lights of Cozumel in the distance.  I believe the tropical storm winds are to be here around daylight and I will report again when I can see the ocean.  I'm predicting it will be a mad house as people will being trying to get ready at the last minute.
On a side note, around 12pm or so today the ferry's that transport people back and forth to Cozumel stopped service and when to the marina in Puerto Aventuras without warning.  Can you imagine being on Cozumel and only finding out last night that Ivan could actually come this way?  I wonder if they will be flying any evacuation flights out of there? 
I am still unable to get through to family in Grand Cayman but I'm hoping I will before we loose our phone service due to Ivan!
See you in the morning

It is 0100 Local time CanCun and everything is tranquil.
There have been periodic light showers (chubascos), but nothing like the wind and rain reported at 2100.
People are buying up all the candles and batteries in the local tiendas.
The temperature seems to have dropped by a cool 10 degrees or maybe it is the lack of humidity. current temp. 22 C./75 F.
It is a good time to make a Walmart run and stock up.

Hurricane Ivan as of 11:30pm (local time) on Sunday 12 Sept is not causing
much problem in Cancun. One small rain band came through at about 9pm but it
is calm and no rain at all right now.

Nobody in Cancun is prepared should this Cat 5 hurricane hit... nor do we
expect it to. Generally the "left side" of a hurricane is far better than
the NorthEast brunt. Still... I have stocked up on extra water and canned
food just in case. The next few hours will tell.

  • Date: Sun, 12 Sep 2004 19:17:47 -0700 (PDT)
Hello all,
Diver Dan from CanCun reporting.
The outer bands have started arriving in strength at about 1800 here in the CanCun proper area. I am about a 1/4 mile from the Ocean in the suburb of Puerto Juarez, located on the North West end of the Bay of Isle Mujeres.
The rain has been consistent with light to medium winds. Rain Water has already accumulated to the point of flooding out several streets in the downtown area and the lower basin.Remember CanCun only sits a few feet above sea level. There was one power outage at my house already which lasted about 5 minutes. Power goes out about once a month normal.
The Mexican government has just started putting out Hurricane watch warnings. They are not prepared for another "Gilberto" which struck in 19988 almost to this day. CanCun has grown to over 350,000 souls with most living in palapas or Giligan Island type housing. If Ivan comes through like Charley did in Punta Gorda the cost of life and damage will be astronomical.I just drove around town and lines in the gas stations are above average. The major shopping centers are full which is the norm for a Sunday night. I have not seen any preparation at all like in Key West.
Most all the reports that are given out on the television are taken directly off of the NOAA site and the weather channel. They are doing the reports in Mayan as well as in Spanish and in English. I have not heard not heard any reports about evacuation of the Hotel zone which is officially an Island but really not much more than a spit of sand surrounding the lagoon. This is the slow season right now so hotels are less than 50% occupancy.
I will report If and when there are any changes.

It's 8 PM on the Caribbean coast of Mexico, across from Cozumel.  It has started raining, not much wind with the rain.  Now it looks like we will be affected by the outer bands of Ivan as it moves through the Yucatan Channel.  We probably won't evacuate unless the eye should change to a complete westward movement, but we are buttoning everything up.  We're keeping an eye on the radar on Stormcarib, as our TV signal fails whenever it rains.

  • Date: Sun, 12 Sep 2004 17:30:20 -0500
We are living in Playa Del Carmen, 60 km south of Cancun and directly across from Cozumel.  We have only relocated here this past year from the Cayman Islands.  We've been watching Ivan as it moved to Cayman as we have family and friends on Cayman and still have not had word from them since last night at 11pm!!  We pray that everyone is safe, houses can be repaired, people are a lot more fragile.
Now it looks as though Ivan plans to make a visit to us here as well.  Mexico is really a funny place and I can not believe that they have only just issued the a Hurricane watch an hour ago!!  No one is prepared or even getting prepared.  We look out from our terrace and see people playing on the beach as the waves are the largest I've ever seen them here.  On top of this, we just found out that the plywood that was set asside to board up window for our condos has been used for other things and there are not any stores open today to buy plywood!!  I feel as though I'm in a twilight zone episode and I'm the only one that realizes that a massive hurricane is quickly approaching!  I know that it supposed to make the Northwestward turn but they've been saying that for the past 3 days. It was supposed to turn up way before Grand Cayman and look what happened there! 
Right now we sunny skys and the wind picks up from time to time.  The ocean has risen a little and is coming up much higher on the beach and the waves are starting to build. Hopefully we will be luckier then Cayman and it will turn north before it comes this far.
Our prayers are with everyone in Grand Cayman.

Good Morning!   From the Mexican east coast across from Cozumel ~ we awoke this morning to a cloudy sky and distant thunder.  A brief rainstorm has moved over, but the main part of the storm is still offshore, growing closer every minute.  The thunder is louder and the dog is more nervous, but it appears on radar and in the reports that it will only be a thunderstorm and showers.  It's been a very hot and humid spring and summer so far, a rainstorm will be refreshing.  Have a great day!

The water has receeded and the flooding, for the most part, has been reduced 
to a few large puddles.  I have to emphazise that the majority of the damage 
was away form the hotel zones and really did not inconvenience tourists.  In 
fact, we had 2 ships arrive on Monday with thousands of people ready to 
enjoy the island.

We are expecting scattered clouds and hot temperatures for the remainder of 
the week and the slight possibility of T-storms due to the humidity.

They pegged the damage of the storm at close to $1 million with 2 confirmed 
deaths.  1 male and sadly, 1 child.  No news on the plane that was lost so 
we can assume that the landing, either deliberate or as a crash, was done 
without injuries.

Things are pretty well back to normal, so enjoy your vacation while you are

We had our share of rough weather here last night.  Moderate winds, extreme 
rainfall and plenty of lightning accompanied the storm.

When it all ended at about 11am we had widespread flooding with most 
westward neighbourhoods totally secluded with flooded streets totalling 3 
feet or so.  Along with this was isolated flooding throughout most other 
parts including the Corpus Christie area where some flood waters were 5 feet 
deep.  The road to the north hotel zone was flooded out and totally 
impassable with waters up to 5 feet approximately.

The Cozumel airport has been closed due to flooding and we lost a small 
plane last night as it attempted to land.  There is no news as of yet of any 
survivors or the exact location of the plane, although 1 tree near the 
airport had it's top leaves cut off.

Internet access has been restored along with foreign TV stations like ABC, 
CBS and NBC.

We have been experiencing the effects of a low pressure system that has been 
very slow moving for the past few days through the Caribbean.  The rain 
started on June 10 and is expected until June 14.  The low has shown some 
upper level rotation, but it WILL NOT develop into anything in the Gulf of 
Mexico.  We should expect some normal t-storms and steady showers with winds 
about 5-10mph with occasional light gusts.
