In Acapulco, Mexico, on October 24, a meteorological phenomenon unfolded that marked the most intense event in the country's history. A tropical storm rapidly escalated to a Category 5 hurricane in less than 12 hours, registering wind speeds exceeding 270 kilometers per hour. Upon making landfall, the hurricane wreaked havoc, obliterating everything in its path and claiming numerous possessions. Unfortunately, among the losses were also several lives.
