Praying for Guerrero, Mexico: Uniting in Solidarity after Hurricane Otis

30 Ottobre 2023

We pray for the state of Guerrero in Mexico, which was struck by Hurricane Otis. The hurricane made landfall at midnight on Wednesday and rapidly intensified from a tropical storm to a Category 5 hurricane in just 12 hours, bringing winds of 260 km/h. According to authorities, at least 27 people have lost their lives, and four people are still missing. The province of Acapulco, a significant tourist destination, was severely impacted. Numerous houses, supermarkets, schools, and other infrastructure were destroyed.
