Hurricane Roslyn made landfall just before 5:30 a.m. local time Sunday in west-central mainland Mexico near Santa Cruz in northern Nayarit state.
In addition to damaging winds, Roslyn was expected to produce 4 to 8 inches of rain from the upper coast of Jalisco state to Nayarit state, including Las Islas Marias, with localized amounts of up to 10 inches.
Southeastern Sinaloa, southern Durango and southwestern Zacatecas states were predicted to receive 4 to 6 inches of rain, with isolated higher totals as high as 8 inches.
The heavy rainfall resulted in flash flooding and landslides, especially in areas with rugged terrain.
