On the beaches, mainly in the bay of Acapulco, the phenomenon of low tide occurred causing astonishment among residents and tourists, as well as strong gusts of wind as typical of the season.
The Secretary of Civil Protection of the state, Roberto Arroyo Matus, said that according to the report of the Secretary of the Navy, the low tide phenomenon occurred more on beaches such as Las Hamacas and Manzanillo, and the swell level is normal, between 1.2 and 1.8 meters.
"The phenomenon is low and there is no swell, so far there is no report of damage. Sometimes it is more notorious at this time of the year but it is a New Moon condition that is almost already occurring and the gravitational attraction that the moon exerts on the sea causes a high tide in some places of the world and others there is a low tide," he explained.
This phenomenon associated with low tide has caused the sea level to retreat an average of 5 to 10 meters and places such as Las Hamacas beach caused the discovery of sacks of stones that were placed as oyster beds.
The command post and the 911 emergency number have not received any call or report regarding any incident caused by this phenomenon that occurred this Sunday and caused astonishment among residents and tourists. Strong winds are also typical of the season, with gusts of 5 to 10 knots.
