Already 47 deaths due to storm Mexico.

The number of people killed by the storm in Mexico rises. There are certainly numbers that so far 47 people have been killed. Many tourists are stranded, especially in the resort city of Acapulco, which is largely blocked from the outside world. The army in Mexico has airlifted more than 2000 tourists  away from the flooded city, reports the BBC.

Two storms beset Mexico simultaneously, tropical Storm Manuel pulls from the west in Mexico, while Hurricane Ingrid especially in the east provides causes a nuisance.

Due to the bad weather, everyday life in parts of the Latin American country has come to a stand still. Tens of thousands of people have sought refuge in emergency shelters.

In several states people were killed by landslides, mud flows or when their houses collapsed under the heavy rain. In the tourist city Acapulco alone 21 people were killed.
The roads of the city are blocked.
