Tropical Depression Nineteen-E (2018) September 2018 storm in Mexico

Tropical Depression Nineteen-E was a weak tropical cyclone that caused flooding throughout Western Mexico, and is the first known tropical cyclone to have formed over the Gulf of California. Nineteen-E originated from a tropical wave that left the west coast of Africa on August 29 to 30. It continued westward, crossed over Central America, and entered the northeastern Pacific Ocean on September 6 to 7. It then slowed down and meandered to the southwest of Mexico for the next several days. Around the same time, a trough dropped down from the United States. The two interacted and an area of disturbed weather formed several hundred miles off the southern coast of Mexico on September 14. The National Hurricane Center continued to track the disturbance for the next several days as it tracked northward. A surface trough developed over the Baja California peninsula on September 18. On the next day, a circulation center and more concentrated convection formed along the trough. Despite disorganization and having close proximity to land, the disturbance developed into a tropical depression in the Gulf of California later on the same day. The system peaked with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph (55 km/h) and a minimum central pressure of 1002 mbar. One day after forming, the depression quickly deteriorated and dissipated after making landfall in Sonora. Overall, the depression affected eleven Mexican states, with torrential rainfall and flooding ensuing in Baja California Sur, Sinaloa, and Sonora. Ten individuals were killed in Chihuahua and Sinaloa, and over $40 million USD in agricultural losses were recorded. Additionally, excessive rainfall led to the inundation of at least 300,000 structures in Sinaloa. Flood damages there are estimated to be in the hundreds of millions.
