Mexico is hit by a series of natural disasters.

First an earthquake, then a hurricane and now a storm. Mexico is being pummeled by natural disasters. A second potential hurricane (‘Max’) has now been downgraded to a tropical storm, but authorities have still warned of heavy rains, and possible flash floods and landslides in the coastal states of Oaxaca and Guerrero.

It has forced Mexico to withdraw an offer of aid extended to the US during Hurricane Harvey. The government says it needs the resources. A week ago, at least 98 people were killed in an 8.1-magnitude earthquake of the Pacific Coast and at least two people died after Hurricane Katia made landfall last Friday (September 8).

The clean-up operation is ongoing in the south of the country. And now the north, specifically the Baja California peninsula, is bracing for further bad weather. Tropical Storm Norma is predicted to become a hurricane, as Mexicans prepare to celebrate their Independence Day this weekend.
