Hurricane Cristina has formed off Mexico’s Pacific coast.  The hurricane’s maximum sustained winds early Wednesday are near 75 mph and the U.S. National Hurricane Center says additional strengthening is expected during the next two days.  Cristina is centered about 265 miles south of Manzanillo, Mexico.  A west to west-northwest motion is expected over the next several days, keeping the storm’s center offshore over the next five days, and gradually moving it even farther away from shore.  The Hurricane Center says swells generated by Cristina are affecting parts of Mexico’s south central and southwestern coast.  The swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  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 Wednesday, June 11th, 2014.  Please contact CSA Travel Protection with questions.
