We?¢â??¬â??¢ll, we?¢â??¬â??¢ve got another Tropical Storm called Calvin. This one didn?¢â??¬â??¢t quite make it to a hurricane, and it?¢â??¬â??¢s pretty far south about 100 miles off Acapulco. Calvin is expected to dissipate soon, but there?¢â??¬â??¢s a 4th system developing already. According to all the historical data of hurricanes, none have ever come up the Sea of Cortez in July; only 3 tropical storms have made it up the Sea in the last 80 years. So July is pretty safe, but that doesn?¢â??¬â??¢t make hearing about them any easier. August and September are the much more dangerous times of year. The Bahia de Los Angeles area is very protected and on the edge of the belt, as we keep reminding ourselves, so we?¢â??¬â??¢ll be just fine.
