Mexico Announces Plans to Rebuild Acapulco After Hurricane Otis; Europe Hit by Record Wind and Rain

HeadlineNov 03, 2023

Mexico’s government has announced a $3.4 billion project to rebuild Acapulco, a week after Hurricane Otis slammed into the Pacific coast city as a Category 5 storm, leaving a trail of devastation. Forty-six people have been confirmed dead, and another 58 remain missing, though some local officials believe the true toll is higher.

Meanwhile, extreme weather has killed at least 12 people across France, Spain, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Italy. Storm Ciarán brought hurricane-force winds to southern England and France’s northwestern coast before dumping record levels of rainfall on large swaths of Europe. 2023 remains on track to become Europe’s hottest year since at least 1940.
