Large waves caused by Hurricane Cristina endanger the playas La Boquita de Miramar, Manzanillo, y El Paraíso, Armería. A number a beach palapas have been damaged as well as other ocean side structures. It seems 3 cocodrilos preferred the ocean over the lagoon and were seen swimming in playa Miramar.

Hurricane Hunter at Manzanillo airport May 5th

Colima, Col. - To generate awareness of the risks posed by weather events, the Hurricane Hunter aircraft will arrive at the International Airport Playa de Oro Manzanillo (ZLO),  from the United States.

The director of the National Water Commission (Conagua) in Colima, José Juan Michel, said the journey that makes the plane of the U.S. Navy shows the public the tools, equipment and instruments they have.

The general public may visit from 12 noon to 6 pm.

He said this is a very important tool from the neighboring United States, to promote the culture of the Civil Protection and to raise public awareness of what we are generating, and perhaps involuntarily, causing climate changes not only in the country but worldwide.

The 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron, known as the Hurricane Hunters of the Air Force Reserve, is the only Department of Defense organization still flying into tropical storms and hurricanes – since 1944. The ten Lockheed-Martin WC-130J aircraft and crews are part of the 403rd Wing, based at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Colima 50 Centavo note

I found this bill posted on Colima Antigua saying that it was issued in 1914.   Google searching for more I found many denominations issued around that time from all over Mexico. The notes were issued during the Mexican Revolution. The Revolution caused the collapse of the Mexican government as well as the intervention of the United States.   I guess with all the confusion and doubt it was safer for each state or region to print their own money.   I'll let you study more if interested.
