Hurricane Emily hit Mexico's Yucatan peninsula early Monday, July 18, 2005. The hurricane's center was just southwest of Cozumel island, a popular tourist area. Most of the tourists were evacuated as the storm drew closer on Sunday. Emily weakened to a Category 2 storm as it passed over the Yucatan.

Stan DeVoogd, PC(USA) Liaison for Mexico, noted that there is flooding in the cities. We are reminded that during the past year, Mexico has been gripped by drought that resulted in the loss of crops and cattle.
