We've got a storm brewing in the tropical paradise down south, and it's not your usual piña colada. Tropical Storm Otis and Cyclone Norma are throwing a tropical tantrum like no other. Otis, the latest in a long line of Pacific Ocean troublemakers, is slowly making its way towards Guerrero, Mexico. And you know what they say: “Slow and steady wins the race.” Well, in this case, it's more like slow and steady gives you time to pack an extra poncho and batten down the hatches.
As of the latest data, Otis is currently 450 kilometers south of Puerto Angel, Oaxaca, and 640 kilometers south-southeast of Acapulco, Guerrero. It's got maximum sustained winds of 75 kilometers per hour and gusts that can get up to a whopping 95 kilometers per hour. But Otis isn't in a rush; it's leisurely sauntering north at a pace that would make your grandma proud, about 7 kilometers per hour.
