That’s what happened Sept. 15-16, and this image from NASA’s Terra satellite and taken from the NASA website shows the power unleashed on Mexico those two days.
At left is Tropical Storm Manuel, which hit the area around Acapulco on the Pacific side, and at right is Hurricane Ingrid rolling in off the Gulf of Mexico. On the morning of Sept. 15, when this image was taken, Ingrid had winds of 75 mph.
According to this NASA blog posting, the last time Mexico got hit by simultaneous hurricanes was in 1958.
The storms and subsequent flooding took 139 lives, although nearly 60 people remain missing. Losses are estimated at nearly $6 billion.
