“We are still waiting for Acapulco. The electrical service has already been restored, 52 gas stations are open and LP gas is distributed,” the Mexican president wrote on the social network .

López Obrador explained that the census of victims reached 150 thousand homes, which "will receive support to build or improve their houses, including household goods."

“Today (Saturday), the Armed Forces delivered 20,397 food supplies and 120,000 liters of water and this will be the case every day until it is necessary,” said the head of state.

The National Civil Protection Coordination (CNPC) reported this Saturday that the number of missing people rose to 59 after the passage of Hurricane Otis in Guerrero, while the death toll remains at 47.

The Secretary of Economy, Raquel Buenrostro, confirmed that the distribution of the first basic baskets for the victims of Acapulco is already being carried out and that next week they are scheduled to deliver an average of 40,000 meals a day.

The state Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) reported, for its part, that it had already restored 93 percent of the electrical infrastructure on the coast of Guerrero 10 days after the devastating Hurricane Otis, which hit the state as a category 5, the highest in the Saffir-Simpson scale.

“The remaining 7 percent correspond to houses, buildings and other establishments that, due to the damage they suffered, are not in a position to receive the electricity supply,” the CFE noted in a statement.
