Mexico Resident Director Helps Students Prepare for Tropical Storm Matthew
Tropical Storm Matthew is approaching southern Mexico, including the area of Mérida, where our program is located.

Mérida has been issued only a "blue" alert (the lowest possible) for the storm, but Resident Director Diana Arízaga has encouraged IFSA-Butler students to cancel any travel plans to more severely affected areas: Quintana Roo (Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel and all the Mayan Riviera); Belize; and Campeche.

IFSA-Butler Mexico students received extensive hurricane preparation information during the IFSA-Butler orientation. Diana has reminded all students of these safety precautions and is available daily to answer student questions.
