A huge number of buildings, houses, roads, highways and bridges were damaged.

In Acapulco, at least 40,000 tourists, mainly Mexican were stranded. 

Acapulco was cut off from road transport after heavy rains due to Tropical Storm Manuel caused at least 13 landslides, rockslides, floods and collapsed bridges.

Federal officials said it could take at least another day to open the main highway to Acapulco.

The situation was far more serious in the city’s low-income neighbourhoods where rain water flowed from the nearby steep hills into the neighbourhoods causing flood and landslides.
