    •Communities along the Pacific coast could be affected by tsunamis due to the subduction zone between the Cocos and North American tectonic plates. Of special importance are small villages without unprotected seashores. •By the same account, most of western Mexico can be affected by destructive earthquakes. •Coasts along the south Pacific, Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico are seasonally affected by hurricanes from June 1 until November 30. •Mexico experiences volcanic activity in the central-southern part of the country, being the most active the Colima (elev. 3,850 m / 12,631 ft) and Popocatepetl (elev. 5,426 m / 17,802 ft) volcanoes. •Low-lying regions along the southern Gulf of Mexico are prone to flooding, specially during hurricane season hope this helps
