After strengthening to a major Category 4 storm off the western coast of Mexico late Saturday, Oct. 22, Hurricane Roslyn made landfall early Sunday, Oct. 23, in the coastal state of Nayarit as a Category 3, according to the National Water Commission (Conagua).

Roslyn hit the town of Santiago Ixcuintla, Nayarit, with sustained winds of 240 kilometers per hour at about 6:20 a.m. and continued moving north into the mainland, producing conditions for torrential rains across the state and intense rains in Sinaloa, Durango and northern Jalisco, as well as in Zacatecas and  Colima.

As of late Sunday night, three people had been reported killed by the storm in Nayarit, all due to falling debris.
