Concerned in Chicago for families in Mexico after Hurricane Otis – Telemundo Chicago
Chicagoans with relatives in Guerrero say the hours go by and they don’t know what it’s like.
It’s been more than 24 hours since Hurricane Otis made landfall, and Chicago residents whose relatives live in the area say they still have no news of their loved ones.
“We tried to communicate with relatives, but so far we have not had any kind of communication,” Evodio Flores said.
Flores, who lived part of his childhood in the city of Acapulco and is currently part of the Casa Guerrero organization in Chicago, comments that a friend was able to communicate with one of his acquaintances, and although it was a short message, this is what he said to him. .
He added: “He said there is chaos. There is no electricity, no water, and no basic services, and it is a disaster now.”
This information increased his anxiety, because hours later, he wanted to know about his uncles and cousins who lived in Acapulco.
“We have confidence that they protected themselves well,” he said.
Manuel Martinez comments that, unlike Evodio, he was able to contact one of his relatives.
“We have some relatives in Chilpancingo and they are already taking care of them, and they would bring them food,” Martinez said.
According to the Secretary of Migrants and International Affairs of Guerrero, about 350,000 people from this state live in Chicago, making it the second largest city in the United States with a population of Guerrero.
Right now, Casa Guerrero says it is not receiving any type of donations.
