Wildfires – Mexico

Massive wildfires in southern Mexico have sent smoke streaming over Mexico City, turning the sunsets blood red and sending pollution levels skyrocketing. The city’s environment commission has warned residents to stay indoors, and pollution levels could spike further in the coming days. The U.S. National Weather Service has already detected smoke aloft in U.S. skies

NASA satellite imagery from this weekend reveals dozens of hot spots across the region with swirls of smoke blanketing the southern half of Mexico and spilling into Central America. Spot fires also ignited around Mexico City.

Mexico – Hurricane Willa slammed into Mexico’s Pacific coast late yesterday, raking it with winds of 195kph that brought power outages, buffeted buildings, and dumped torrential rain on tourist resorts where thousands of people had moved to safety. Whipping palm trees, bending power lines and causing floods, the center of Willa struck the coast near the town of Isla del Bosque in the northwestern state of Sinaloa, where many coastal areas had been evacuated before the storm hit. Willa has since dissipated.
