Mexico has rescinded its offer of emergency aid for Hurricane Harvey relief after the country suffered two of its own natural disasters. Last Thursday, an 8.1 magnitude earthquake struck off Mexico's southern coast, killing 95 people according to the Foreign Ministry. The next day, Hurricane Katia, a category 1 storm, made landfall in Mexico's state of Veracruz. The Foreign Ministry issued the decision in a statement, saying in part "Given this situation, the Mexican government will channel all available logistical support to the families and communities that have been affected in Mexico." The country had offered to send 25 trailers with supplies, along with 300 beds, 9 generators, water treatment equipment, three mobile kitchens, radio and satellite equipment and personnel.
