Over the weekend, fast moving Hurricane Roslyn dropped to a category three hurricane before it made landfall in west-central Mexico early Sunday morning. The storm quickly downgraded to a tropical storm over east-central Mexico after heavy rains and flash flooding.

  • Hurricane Roslyn crossed into Mexico, south of Mazatlán along the southern tip of the state of Sinaloa, travelling a similar path as Hurricane Orlene three weeks prior
  • The Mexican states of Durango, Sinaloa, Jalisco, Nayarit, and Zacatecas experienced over 10 inches of rain and loss of electricity; landslides and disruption of the supply chain are results of this heavy rain
  • The main growing region of Culiacan avoided a direct hit, but delays and disruptions should still be expected across the region
  • Tomatoes crops in the area are the greatest concern as plants scheduled for harvest in November/December were already planted
    • Tomato markets were already escalating due to extremely limited supply with hurricane Ian in Florida earlier this month
    • Other late fall items that could be impacted include bell peppers, chiles, corn, cucumber and squash
  • Markon will update as more information becomes available
