Mexico’s security secretary says Hurricane Otis was responsible for at least 27 deaths and four people remained missing. Otis roared ashore in Acapulco early Wednesday, unleashing massive floods. The resort city of nearly 1 million descended into chaos. There was looting and residents left without electricity or internet service. The early images and accounts were of extensive devastation, toppled trees and power lines lying in brown floodwaters that in some areas extended for miles. The resulting destruction delayed a comprehensive response by the government, which was still assessing the damage along Mexico’s Pacific coast, and made residents desperate. Navarro stood Wednesday outside a discount grocery and household goods store near the hotel zone, as hundreds of people wrestled everything from packs of hot dogs and toilet paper to flat screen TVs out of the muddy store, struggling to push loaded metal shopping carts onto the mud-choked streets outside.
