ALERT: Dangerous Hurricane Intensifies to Category 4; Approaches West Coast States

September 28, 2018

It seems like the hurricane season has arrived.

Hurricane Rosa has just been reported that it has intensified to a Category 4 storm. The major storm is brewing in the Pacific Ocean with maximum sustained winds of 145 miles per hour, according to "NBC News."

"The swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions," the National Weather Service said according to "NBC."

The storm is creeping towards Arizona, and it is expected to bring heavy rain and possibly life-threatening flooding. According to "Fox10," Arizona has only seen this 16 times since 1950.

"It doesn't seem like this particular storm is going to move up the Gulf of California," said Larry Hopper, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Phoenix. "It's going to take a track that's more similar to Nora or Joanne from 1972."

According to Hopper, Hurricane Rosa can bring a severe impact on the state if things don't change.

The coastline that may be affected by Rosa are southeastern Mexico, the southern Baja California Peninsula, and Southern California this weekend or possibly even Monday, according to "KVOA."

However, by Monday, Hurricane Rosa is expected to drop down to a Category 1 hurricane or a tropical storm, according to "KVOA."

At this time, we don't know if Rosa's remnants will track between Tucson and southeastern California, according to "KVOA."
