Hurricane Beryl, currently Category 4, is expected to extend its effects over the state of Yucatán between Thursday, July 4, and Saturday, July 6; according to experts, it will make landfall in Yucatan as a Category 1 storm.

The Yucatán Emergency Committee announced that four municipalities in the peninsula would be the first to feel the probable effects of Hurricane Beryl: during the night of Thursday, July 4, 2024.

On Monday, July 1, María Fritz Sierra chaired an extraordinary session of the Emergency Committee, with the Secretary of Government of Yucatán requesting calm from state residents, based on expert recommendations about Hurricane Beryl.

Additionally, Enrique Alcocer Basto, responsible for the State Coordination of Civil Protection (PROCIVY), emphasized that Yucatán remains under a Blue Alert, meaning minimal danger and warning its inhabitants of the approach of Hurricane Beryl.

However, he highlighted that its first effects would be noticed in the following locations: Chichimilá, Tixcacalcupul, Chikindzonot, and the southern region of Valladolid; possibly corresponding to very strong rains and intense winds in these sectors of the Yucatán Peninsula.

He assured that he is working hand-in-hand with elements of the National Coordination of Civil Protection (CNPC) and that state authorities have a budget of over 18 million pesos, available for use, if necessary, in case of emergencies on the territory.
