Hurricane Patricia is the strongest hurricane recorded in history and it has already been unleashing its wrath upon Mexico.
Many people are not realizing what this will mean for Mexico in the future. When one thinks of Mexico, a lot of the time they remember the tourist destinations and the more upscale regions. However, Mexico is filled with people who are also in poverty. Those who are in poverty don’t have the resources to adequately prepare themselves for whats to come. Even those residents of Mexico who are more well off may not realize the gravity of the situation. As far as I know, Mexico does not have the infrastructure to deal with a natural disaster of this magnitude. There is likely to be a large death toll and a lot of destruction.
Needless to say, I’m scared for Mexico. From the bottom of my heart, I really want to extend my prayers to those who live in Mexico and also to those who are there just on vacation. I know they will pull through this.
Until next time,
