During a call made in the framework of the morning press conference of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Velázquez said: “We have no reports so far of injured or deceased; I repeat these are preliminary data, we are in the relief phase”. He added: “We are already doing tours mainly in Tulum throughout the length and breadth of the municipality”.

López Obrador advised people not to leave, as fallen trees can pose a risk to the population.

The official announced that, according to the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE), in Tulum about 40 percent of the region is without electricity, in Isla Mujeres 50 percent, while in Cozumel seven colonies do not have the service.

On the other hand, the governor of Quintana Roo, Mara Lezama, launched on social network X the following notice: “Quintanarroenses, the municipalities of north, east, west and center of Quintana Roo we continue in Yellow Alert before the removal of Hurricane Beryl from our shores”.
