TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The U.S. Consulate in Nogales has issued a warning to those traveling to Nogales, Sonora. 

An emergency message was issued on Sunday afternoon, on the Consulate's Twitter page, stating:

"Due to credible threat information the consulate urges U.S. citizens to take highest precautions regarding personal safety in and around Nogales."

The message gives no further specifics. It is similar to warnings the consulate has sent out following bursts of drug cartel violence.  So far there have been no reports of incidents recently. 

Tucson News Now has reached out to the U.S. Consulate by phone and email for clarification, but officials have yet to respond.
