Tropical Storm Blanca – CSA

Last Updated:


CSA has released an updated position statement on the upgraded Hurricane Blanca.

Updated: 06/03/2015

Blanca strengthened to a hurricane yesterday, and is currently a Category 4 located about 400 miles off the coast of the Mexican Riviera.  Blanca could reach Category 5 status (winds of 157 mph or greater) by Thursday, and could weaken over cooler waters over the weekend.  There is increasing confidence that the storm will track toward southern Baja California.  If Blanca directly impacts the southern Baja peninsula, it would likely do so sometime Sunday.  Those in the southern Baja peninsula, including Los Cabos, should closely monitor the progress of Blanca.  High surf and swells generated from Blanca – and leftover from Andres – will affect the Mexican Riviera and southern Baja coast.  Dangerous rip currents are likely.  Customers are strongly encouraged to read their Description of Coverage or Insurance Policy for details regarding their available coverage.  For plans that do offer coverage for adverse weather and natural disasters, please note that there is no coverage for this specific storm under any plans purchased on or after Tuesday, June 2, 2015.  Please contact CSA Travel Protection with questions.
