Storms flood Acapulco, thousands of tourists reported stranded

Twin storms have created havoc on both of Mexico's coasts, cutting off the resort city of Acapulco on the Pacific and causing heavy damage along the Gulf.

Thousands of tourists found themselves stranded in Acapulco on Tuesday with the airport flooded and highways blocked by landslides and water caused by Tropical Storm Manuel. Local news media reported that much of the city was without water or power service.

Mexico's Gulf Coast states meanwhile are trying to recover from Hurricane Ingrid, which drove tens of thousands of people from their homes and blocked highways.
