Hurricane Bud, currently building on the west coast of Mexico, was forecasted to strengthen into a Category 2 hurricane by Tuesday or Wednesday. Even though farmers would welcome rainfall accompanying the hurricane, the weather forecasters at Accuweather state that they expect it to bring flash floods as well.

At the time of writing, Bud was packing winds of 80mph and located near Manzanillo, Mexico. The forecast models predict Bud to grow into a 110 miles per hour storm of Category 2 which would reach the US West Coast or the Mexican Los Cabos resort by Thursday or Friday at the latest.

Given the currently strong developing El Nino undercurrent, the Pacific hurricane season is forecasted to be quite active this year.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">At its strongest, Bud should be a 115-mph Category 3 storm, the National Hurricane Center said. <a href="https://t.co/OlHsoyt2Df">https://t.co/OlHsoyt2Df</a></p>&mdash; USA TODAY (@USATODAY) <a href="https://twitter.com/USATODAY/status/1005955287612821505?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 10, 2018</a></blockquote>

Accuweather claimed that the storm is " likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions" along the west coast of Mexico whilst rain from Bud "could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides in higher terrain."
