Former President Bush Offers Hurricane Patricia Assistance

As Hurricane Patricia bears down on the Pacific coast of Mexico, the Mexican government has declared a state of emergency while cities and towns have been evacuated in advance of the expected 200 mph winds and an enormous storm surge. With the experience of Hurricane Katrina during his administration, former President George W. Bush has reached out to Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto to offer his expertise and assistance in handling such a disaster. Bush’s calls have not been returned.
