At 11a-- Tropical Depression #30 is expected to become a Tropical Storm by 7p tonight, and a Category 2 Hurricane on Sunday. It is currently 1500 km/930 mi ESE of our coasts, moving WSW at 11 kph/7mph. On Sunday night, it is expected to begin causing winds, rain and surge impacts across portions of Nicaragua and Honduras. It will be named Tropical Storm Iota.

At 7a--- The NHC says a Tropical Depression or a Tropical Storm is likely to form later today or tonight while that broad area of low pressure in the central Caribbean Sea moves slowly westward. The thunderstorms and showers associated with it have increased & become better organized since yesterday. Interests in Honduras & Nicaragua should closely monitor its progress. Formation chances are 90% through 48 hours. It is 1650 km (1025 mi) ESE of the coasts of Q Roo and posing no threat to us at this time.

 From the City (Ayuntamiento de Isla Mujeres)

 The Director & personnel with the municipal Department of Urban Development & the Environment provided face masks and antibacterial gel to bus passengers and encouraged them to maintain healthy distance of 1.5 meters from each other, as well as reminding them of the importance of continuing to take care of themselves in the face of the pandemic which is still active. They also monitored that the bus was operating at 50% capacity to avoid agglomerations and possible outbreaks. 

Photos of the march against femicide were also on the City site, noting they marched down the islands main streets where women joined their voices in protest for the elimination of violence toward women and girls, to continue the fight until a women is never again mistreated. They sang, wore purple clothing and carried signs as they asserted their right to free speech in a peaceful march. The City expressed its willingness to help in this peaceful fight.

Since the Sunday evening "Noches Magicas/Magical Nights of Isla Mujeres" public events were suspended due to C-19, the City is looking for ways to showcase local artists, and plans to bring their cultural and artistic activities to social networks. The municipal Director of Youth, Culture & Sport, Carlos Ruben Perez Marti, attended a meeting with his counterparts from the municipalities of Benito Juarez (Cancun) and Lazaro Cardenas (Holbox) to establish a system of cooperation for the cultural benefit of all their locations. He said the activities, which are scheduled to begin in early December, will include art shows, conversations, and culinary demonstrations.

 November is the month dedicated to the Elimination of Violence Against Women, with the international Day on November 25th. In this spirit, the City continues its efforts to prevent abuse toward women and girls of the municipality with the campaign "Isla Mujeres Contigo" (with you). The numbers to report abuse are 998 229 4411, 911 and 089. The campaign is intended to encourage women to report acts of violence, and the City Secretary General, Miriam Trejo Leon, said it is also important that the citizenry be part of the prevention of violence towards women in our municipality. 

    In coordination with the Taxi union, they were placing decals on taxis with the phone numbers to report acts of violence toward women. The leader of the Taxi union, Jose Magana Galue spoke about the importance of working hand in hand with the authorities to obtain results.
