Due to weather conditions red and yellow flags are placed on Los Cabos beaches
At least six of the beaches in Los Cabos have yellow flags, so users should be cautious. There is another area in red.
Derived from the conditions anticipated by the National Meteorological Service (SMN) -in which there is talk of wind gusts that could reach 41 kilometers per hour (km/h)- the Federal Maritime Terrestrial Zone (Zofemat) asked users of the coasts of Los Cabos to abide by the indications; red and yellow flags were placed, it anticipated.
"It recommends beach users to take precautions depending on the color of the flag, which indicates the conditions in which the sea is," it detailed through a brief statement on social networks.
As for the flags, Zofemat Los Cabos specified that the yellow color is found on the beaches of El Chileno, Acapulquito, Palmilla, Santa María, Hacienda and Las Viudas; in red, those located in the tourist corridor of San José del Cabo.
This Sunday the death of 2 tourists - 30 and 40 years old, both Mexican - who were presumably swept away by a wave on the coast located in the area of the tourist corridor of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, was registered; despite the attention of lifeguards, nothing could be done for them.
In the system of flags, the white color means "bad waters sighting", so it is recommended not to enter; the green one reflects that there are optimal conditions for its use; the yellow one warns the visitor to be cautious, either because of the sand or the sea.
Meanwhile, the red color means that you can not enter the sea, so those who are on the coast can enjoy the sand, but without entering the water, the latter, either by waves or strong currents.
Finally, the black flag means that the beach is closed in its entirety because the conditions are too dangerous; in case of observing any of these, the indications of the present authority should be heeded.
