Thousands Stranded in Mexico after Deadly Storms

Ad Feedback

Dozens of people are missing in Mexico following two major storms that claimed the lives of at least 19 people.

Hurricane Manuel and Tropical Storm Ingrid hit the area on both coastlines this week, causing major flooding and leaving thousands of tourists stranded in the resort city of Acapulco.

So far, about 10,000 tourists have been airlifted out of Acapulco.

More are hoping to be rescued Friday after the transportation secretary expressed hopes of reconnecting the highway that goes from Acapulco resorts to the mainland.

Until then, cargo ships are bringing supplies to the city and relief teams from CBN's Operation Blessing are on site.

"Operation Blessing is going in with water purification units, mobile kitchens, food distribution to help those that are most in need," Operation Blessing's Scott Hill said.

The floods are also causing landslides. One north of the city buried a village church and several homes.
