TULUM, México – In the wake of the devastating Hurricane Beryl, families residing in the vulnerable neighborhoods of Tulum faced significant hardships. Torrential rains and powerful wind gusts brought by the hurricane left a trail of destruction, with many homes and streets flooded, trees uprooted, and essential services disrupted. Addressing these urgent needs, Governor Mara Lezama Espinosa, President Diego Castañón, and Army, Navy, and National Guard officials visited the affected areas to offer support and assess the damage.

Governor Lezama’s visit is part of a broader initiative to tour various regions in Quintana Roo that were severely impacted by the hurricane. Her focus remains on the communities most affected by Beryl’s path, where the storm’s repercussions have been particularly severe. These include widespread waterlogging, fallen trees, and the interruption of essential services such as electricity and water supply.

One of the primary concerns following the hurricane has been the extensive flooding that has left many areas uninhabitable. Efforts are underway to drain these waterlogged regions and prevent the outbreak of waterborne diseases. Additionally, teams are working to remove fallen trees that have blocked roads and damaged property, aiming to restore normalcy as quickly as possible.

Governor Lezama’s administration also focuses on long-term recovery and resilience-building. This includes ensuring that affected families receive the necessary support to rebuild their lives. Temporary shelters have been set up for those who have lost their homes, and aid distribution centers provide food, clean water, and medical supplies.

Education is another critical area of concern. Many schools in the impacted regions have suffered damage, disrupting the education of countless children. The government is prioritizing repairing and reopening these schools to ensure that students can resume their studies with minimal delay. Mobile classrooms and educational resources are being deployed to provide continuity in learning.

The economic impact of Hurricane Beryl on Tulum and surrounding areas cannot be overlooked. Small businesses, particularly those reliant on tourism, have been hard hit. The government is working on measures to support these businesses, including financial aid and infrastructure repair, to help the local economy recover swiftly.
