MEXICO CITY, Oct. 23 (Xinhua) -- Hurricane Roslyn has made landfall on Mexico's Pacific coast as it turns Category 3, although it is expected to weaken soon, the National Water Commission reported Sunday.

"Although it is expected that during its displacement overland in Nayarit and southern Durango it will gradually weaken, it will cause torrential rains," the agency said.

It also said that the rainfall accompanying Roslyn could result in landslides, rising water levels, as well as flooding in low-lying areas.

The Federal Electricity Commission has already reported power outages in the states of Nayarit and Jalisco due to the storm.

Residents are advised to follow authorities' instructions and those using boats or other sea-going vehicles are urged to exercise extreme caution due to strong winds and waves in coastal areas.

The hurricane made landfall on Sunday morning in west-central Mexico near Santa Cruz, Nayarit state, with maximum sustained winds of around 193 km per hour. Enditem
