Hurricane Emily was an unpredictable storm from the beginning. It struck Grenada as a category 1 hurricane on July 13 causing damage to many of the same health facilities that were battered by last year's Hurricane Ivan. Other Caribbean countries were spared devastation by Emily, which passed over the Mexican Yucatan Peninsula as a category 4 hurricane and later struck the country's northern states of Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon, Veracruz and Coahuila.
