A Terrible Tragedy in Mexico

An awful catastrophe has occurred on the Pacific coast of Mexico, tearing down the houses and lives of ill-fated families.

Hurricane Patricia has been recorded as the strongest hurricane ever. The dreadful hurricane came upon the cities Guadalajara, Manzanillo, and Puerto Vallarta in Mexico. At least six people died and seven were injured in the great accident that was Patricia. The government made a great number of the population evacuate from luxury beach resorts that hit southwestern Mexico.

Since the hurricane hit the cities of Mexico, the government was fast to work handling the people who lived in the cities that were hit by the hurricane. A part of the Pacific Coast that not many people were living in the main parts that were hit by the strong hurricane. Tens of thousands of people evacuated their homes. Many people were evacuated from the homes they have lived in  for so many year and 1,200 shelters were set up for the population.

As people would say “Hurricane Patricia had spared Mexico” even though there still were house and hotels that were in rough shape after the hurricane had passed, but the well known thing was that there was  no reports of major damage from Patricia. “Evacuations and security measures put in place ahead of the hurricane helped spare lives and infrastructure”. Mexico and President Enrique Pena Nieto were ready to control the category 5 hurricane, the highest level on the Saffir-Simpson scale.

Mexico has been affected with a great deal of pain because of the upsetting catastrophe that happen because of the level 5 hurricane. The government has done everything in their power to secure the safety of many people. Safety has mean the main priority for everyone in the coastal cities that were hit. Even though Patricia was the strongest and most powerful hurricane ever on record, when it came to land it wasn’t as powerful as it was on sea. Hurricanes can always range from you barely feeling them to them destroying the home you leave in, the families whose    homes were destroyed need all the help they can get.
