Before-and-afters show devastation from Category 5 Hurricane Otis in Mexico
New satellite images capture the scale of destruction Category 5 Hurricane Otis wrought in Acapulco and southern Mexico.
Few in history have endured a storm as strong as Otis – Acapulco never has. Its 165-mph winds and stronger gusts were akin to a slow-moving, 30-mile-wide, EF3 tornado.
At least 27 people were killed as the sea surged inland, urged forward by the storm’s wind which ripped and tore away at Acapulco’s skyline.
