Mexico, Hit by Its Own Disasters, Can't Help Texas After All

Mexican government officials had initially announced their offer in a statement responding to President Donald Trump's tweets bashing Mexico for violence and the trade deal between the countries.

Though the Mexican government announced in late August that it would offer aid to the thousands of victims of Hurricane Harvey in the United States, the nation's foreign ministry announced Monday that it would rescind that offer following the devastation wrought by a deadly quake and a Category 2 hurricane late last week.

Mexico will no longer send the emergency aid offered to Texas after Hurricane Harvey, to focus on those affected by a deadly natural disaster and Hurricane Katia that struck the eastern state of Veracruz last week, the Mexican Foreign Ministry said Monday.

In a statement, the country offered food, generators and medical aid "as good neighbors should always do in trying times".

Then came Hurricane Katia, which recently whipped into Mexico.

The government estimates that some 2.5 million people are in need of aid, and survivors are still waiting for help in some areas. And it expressed "full solidarity" with the victims of Hurricane Irma.

Murat said 1 million people in Oaxaca needed food, water, electricity and help rebuilding damaged homes, while in neighboring Chiapas state, which was closest to the epicenter of the tremor, 1.5 million people were affected, according to officials.

Last month, the Mexican government released a statement promising help in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. "Mexico will be alert to developments related to this hurricane in the coming days and hopes that Florida, Texas and Louisiana soon recover from the damage caused by the hurricanes that have struck them".

Mexico, which sent brigades to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, first offered to send help to Texas on August 27, when Mr. Videgaray spoke to Mr. Abbott by telephone, the foreign ministry said. "He emphasised to Foreign Secretary Videgaray that the U.S. government stands ready to assist our neighbours in Mexico during this hard time".
