The hurricane had sustained winds of 120 mph according to the National Hurricane Center.

But for citizens in Puerto Vallarta, they saw no high winds, but received heavy rain. The storm surge did cause some damage along the malecon.

Heavy damage was reported on the boardwalk from the storm surge and high waves. Some businesses experienced damage to the front of their shops according to Tribune de la Baha.

Highway 200 at the town of San Quintin is closed due to a landslide.

But other areas were not as fortunate. Damage reports are still coming in but Sayulita is one of the towns most affected with homes flooded and wind damage.
