Donations Tropical Storm Manuel and Hurricane Ingrid victims

Post by webmaster » Tue Sep 17, 2013 7:18 pm

Other than much needed rain, Puerto Vallarta was spared by the damage inflicted on two-thirds of Mexico's territory by Ingrid and Manuel.

This unprecedented impact caused from moderate to extremely serious damage in all Mexican states, except three. Several states have declared emergency and one, Guerrero, extraordinary emergency. 40 deaths and more than 1.2 million children, women and men are displaced, many localities in the country are unreachable by land, some can't be reached even by air at this time.

Countless rivers and 21 dams have overflowed, 8 more dams are reaching capacity. Power and telephone are down in countless localities. Roads have been washed out or covered by landslides, bridges and tunnels have collapsed making it difficult for Army, Navy and Red Cross rescuers to get to those isolated by the disaster.

Acapulco is a special case. Its international airport is flooded and closed to air-traffic, all roads to and from that port are also closed, making the situation in Acapulco worse than in other areas of the country because more than 50,000 tourists --who visited Acapulco for the four-day weekend-- are stranded there, the city simply doesn't have enough food or medication supplies after the long weekend leading into the slowest weeks of the year for Mexican tourist destinations.

What does this have to do with you and Puerto Vallarta? I'm glad you asked!

The Mexican Red Cross is accepting donations to: Cruz Roja Mexicana account 0404 0404 06 at BBVA Bancomer (branch 683), you may make a deposit to that account at any Bancomer branch

To transfer money from other Mexican banks to the Mexican Red Cross' account in Bancomer, use CLABE: 012180004040404062

For transfers from abroad, this is what your bank needs:
Account holder: Cruz Roja Mexicana
Account # 0404040406
Bank: BBVA Bancomer
Branch: 683
Branch Address: Mexico D.F., Palmas, Plaza Mexico
SWIFT/BIC Code: BCMRMXMMPYM

Every penny counts. Donations, in any amount, can and will save lives.

For those driving to Laredo, TX, roads in San Luis Potosi and Tamaulipas, between PV and Laredo, suffered serious damage. It may be impossible to make it to the border that way. Please feel free to repost this in any and all venues you deem pertinent.
