Notable Storms of the 2013 Pacific Tropical Season: Tropical Storm Ivo

Tropical Storm Ivo would bring damaging winds and flooding rains to Baja California as well as parts of the southwestern United States during the late parts of August.

The storm began its life as Tropical Depression Nine-E on August 22nd, 2013 about 400 miles to the southwest of Cabo San Lucas in Mexico.

As it moved to the north, Nine-E became Tropical Storm Ivo the next day. Like Eric, the storm would not make a direct landfall, but winds and rain from the storm would affect parts of Baja California.

According to ENEX/AZTECA, wind gusts reached up to 85 miles per hour in that area. They also reported that highways were damaged by the storm as well. KCBS/KCAL reported that moisture from the storm brought heavy rains to parts of southern California, such as the community of Acton. That rain was as heavy as two inches of rain in an hour.

As moisture from that storm continued to stream into that area, Ivo broke up on August 25th.
