As the Atlantic hurricane season starts, Hurricane Hanna has already affected North America, with Mexico facing widespread flooding and Texas facing 90mph winds and 6-12 inch of rain, leading to flooding.

Texas has prepared for the hurricane season as it normally does but preparations have been amended as a result of the Covid-19 crisis. One example of this is how rescue shelters to house those affected by hurricanes have been arranged with social distancing in mind between different families.

In Matamoros, a Mexican border town, approximately 1300 asylum seekers are waiting in a migrant camp near the Rio Grande, under the US immigration policy informally known as “Remain in Mexico”. There are concerns about flooding from the Grande on the camp and despite the fact that Hanna is now subsiding, this is an ongoing risk throughout the season.
