Wilma Went Wild in Cancun

Buy a print of this painting

Cancun is the premiere tourist destination in Mexico.  Category 4 Hurricane Wilma carved an uncozy path straight through the nearby island of Cozumel -- then she hit Hotel Row in Cancun's barrier islands.

Here are some really cool promotional 360 views of a few Cancun hotels:

Sadly, the beautiful views above may now be characterized as "Before Wilma" views.  Hurricane Wilma lingered over the Yucatan for over 36 hours and thousands of international tourists are stranded in emergency shelters inland.

According to official sources in Mexico, over 22,000 people are sheltered in 100 emergency facilities in Quintana Roo and Yucatan.  Nearly one million people are affected locally by the storm damage.

The Mexican Red Cross is assisting people in the storm-ravaged area, but clearly they need international support in the wake of their relief efforts because of Hurricane Stan.

Hm. I don't remember that Flinstones episode.

It's weird the way Katrina was such a popular media subject, but I haven't heard as much about Wilma.

One problem Wilma had is that she spent the weekend in Cancun, and then hit Florida. She did an amazing amount of destruction in both places. Typically, we rarely get primetime news about Mexico in the U.S. but some UK media outlets reported on the plight of stranded tourists, etc. Miami-Dade county schools are supposed to reopen on Monday, finally. There are still hundreds of thousands of people without power.
