In a press release on Monday, it was reported that Otis's wind speeds increased by 115 miles an hour, making this the second fastest recorded hurricane in modern times.


Officials are working to bring water and fuel to the residents affected by Otis.


The Mexico Hurricane Center described Hurricane Otis as, "a nightmare scenario" and one woman said she thought she was going to die as she watched the water rise in their home. A business owner named John, who did not want to provide his last name, said, "Its like the apocalypse. 90% of the buildings are damaged. So many businesses and hotels are damaged."
