'Marie' genera "lluvias muy fuertes" y se fortalece al sur de Jalisco - Nacional - CNNMexico.com | Puerto Vallarta | Scoop.it

Se prevé que el huracán Marie de categoría 1 se intensifique en las primeras horas del domingo frente a las costas de Jalisco, y que siga provocando lluvias en gran parte del territorio nacional.

El pronóstico es que Marie se ubique frente a Cabo Corrientes, Jalisco, mientras sigue su desplazamiento hacia el oeste, "bordeando las costas del Pacífico Central", informó la Comisión Nacional del Agua (Conagua).

La Comisión apuntó en un comunicado emitido cerca de las 19:30 horas que el huracán se ubicaba 540 kilómetros al sureste de Isla Socorro, Colima, y 555 kilómetros al suroeste de Manzanillo, Colima.

Dine OUT Tuesday, November 11 to support Puerto Vallarta Men’s Chorus | Puerto Vallarta Men's Chorus

Dine OUT Tuesday, November 11 to support Puerto Vallarta Men’s Chorus | Puerto Vallarta Men's Chorus | Puerto Vallarta | Scoop.it
PuertoVallarta's insight:

Wow! One of the easiest fundraisers in all of Vallarta to support! Just invite some friends and go out to breakfast, lunch or dinner on Tuesday, November 11 at one of the fine restaurants participating in the Dine OUT. The more people the better because the restaurants will contribute a percentage of their income – a percentage of your bill–for that one day to help fund the chorus.

Why support Puerto Vallarta Men’s Chorus (PVMC)? Aside from the cultural benefits to PV, a gay men’s chorus helps create a positive bond within the community and helps conquer discrimination.
