Pretend hurricane?

How come Reuters, MSNBC etc are saying hurricane Jova is threatening the Mexican Pacific coast, and when I go on the interactive weather map ( to look at it on radar, there’s nothing there?

The following link is the current info from the weather channel:

Go here:

If you just go to “” and click radar, you are just getting the US. You must be more specific. It is a real hurricane, don’t worry.

you have to go to hurricane central to get hurricanes on a path that takes them outside the US, we have to pay attention here because even though it makes landfall in Mexico the flooding rainfall and other effects can impact us. We had severe flooding all down the Rio Grande Valley last year from a hurricane that hit northern Mexico, people are still recovering, some still homeless.

Link to the National Hurricane Center…

Thank you!!
