Hurricane Otis- Category 5, sustained winds of 260 km/hr., just about to hit Acapulco. Looks like they are going to get slammed.

This went from a nothing burger to a major hurricane in a very short period of time. Prayers for those on the coast near Acapulco.

Yes, it turned into a monster really quickly. I hope the folks around there had adequate time to prepare.

All communications have been cut and they're scrambling to re-establish contact.

This is worrying for residents of Acapulco... estimated 15 BILLION dollars in damage... stores have been looted and are empty... 27 dead, 4 missing...

Yes, it's a disaster of major proportions. Will take years for them to recover. Building high rise hotels on the beach when you live in hurricane alley is probably not a smart idea.
Also Acapulco is an old resort town. Lots of structures were built long ago and poorly.
