Posted: 09/28/2015

Tropical Storm Marty formed Saturday night in the Pacific Ocean.  The storm was located about 215 miles west-southwest of Acapulco, Mexico, as of Monday morning.  Marty is expected to slowly move to the northeast toward the southern coast of Mexico.  Even though the center may never make landfall, heavy rainfall is still likely through Thursday over portions of Guerrero and surrounding areas as Marty approaches with 6 to 12 inches of rain possible.  The rainfall could result in life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides.  A tropical storm warning has been issued for a portion of the Mexico coast from Tecpan de Galeana to Lazaro Cardenas.  A tropical storm watch is also in place from Acapulco to east of Tecpan de Galeana and from west of Lazaro Cardenas to Punta San Telmo.  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 September 27, 2015.  Please contact CSA Travel Protection with questions.
