Puerto Vallarta Reports No Major Hurricane Damage

Puerto Vallarta officials are reporting that after an extensive evaluation of the city after the passage of Hurricane Willa, no significant damage is being reported and operations are normal.

Puerto Vallarta’s tourism infrastructure – including Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport, which has remained open, trans-national roads and the marina, cruise port and Pier Los Muertos – are operating normal.

According to Adrian Bobadilla, head of Civil Protection and Puerto Vallarta’s Fire Department, a total of 587 tourists and 62 locals were housed in city shelters because they were in high-risk areas, mostly around local bodies of water. He also mentioned that many locals opted to stay with family members while some hotels conducted voluntary evacuations according to their own contingency plans.
