Hurricane Otis. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador assured that the census of those affected by Hurricane Otis in Guerrero will end soon, speeding up the distribution of supplies and support to the affected population. In addition, he pointed out that there are still 26 people missing.

Hurricane Otis, a Category 5 storm, made landfall in Acapulco on Oct. 25, resulting in significant destruction of the city's infrastructure and the state of Guerrero. Two weeks later, authorities are still working to restore basic services (water and electricity) in some areas. In the meantime, they are ensuring the distribution of goods to the 250,000 homes affected by the event.

Homicide Rate in Sonora. Alfonso Durazo, Governor, Sonora, highlighted that both homicides and femicides have decreased since the beginning of his administration, although he acknowledged that there are peaks in the numbers reported. As a result, they continue working to reduce the daily murder rate, which averages 3.9 in 2023.

Hermosillo, Cajeme, Caborca, and San Luis Río Colorado are the municipalities in Sonora with the highest concentration of homicide cases. SEDENA reported that homicides, vehicle theft, and drug trafficking in Sonora are concentrated in these four municipalities, accounting for 75% of the cases.
