H7 vicente aftermath

In Mexico, Tropical Storm Vicente killed at least 12 people in the southern state of Oaxaca over the weekend as landslides and flooding in the region forced many others to evacuate. Meanwhile, Hurricane Willa is set to make landfall as a Category 4 storm when it hits Mexico’s Pacific coast Tuesday afternoon with sustained winds of 145 miles per hour. The hurricane is expected to pass through the archipelago of Islas Marías, which houses a federal prison, before hitting the coastline.
