Civil Protection Director General Ricardo de la Cruz Musalem announced that the preventive strategy known as Plan MX has been put into action in response to tropical storm Franklin’s trajectory through Mexico, as per orders of President Enrique Peña Nieto.

Three more plans were activated to prevent disaster, said Cruz Musalem at a press conference: Plan DNIII, from the National Defense Secretariat (Sedena); Plan Navy, from the Navy Secretariat (Semar); and Plan General Help and Support, from the Federal Police.

The Mexican government will make use of all available resources and do whatever is necessary to protect its population, he stated.
