Natural disasters in Mexico
From earthquakes, to hurricanes, to floods, Mexico is greatly affected by natural disasters. Some of these include the:
2006 Mexico City earthquake
The 2006 Mexico City earthquake was a magnitude 5.9 earthquake that occurred on August 11, 2006 at 14:30:44 (UTC) approximately 200 km WSW of Mexico's capital Mexico City.
Hurricane Wilma was the most intense hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic basin. Wilma was the twenty-second storm, thirteenth hurricane, sixth major hurricane, and fourth Category 5 hurricane of the record-breaking 2005 season. Wilma made several landfalls, with the most destructive effects felt in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, Cuba, and the U.S. state of Florida. At least 63 deaths were reported, and damage is estimated at over $29.1 billion ($20.6 billion in the US; 2005 US dollars), ranking Wilma among the top 5 costliest hurricanes ever recorded in the Atlantic and the third costliest storm in U.S. history.
2007 Tabasco flood
The 2007 Tabasco flood occurred in late October and early November 2007 in the Mexican states of Tabasco and Chiapas, in which as much as 80% of the former was left under water. At least 20,000 people were forced to seek emergency shelter. Over 1,000,000 residents were affected.
