Suffering itself after two devastating earthquakes last month, an 8.2-magnitude quake on Thursday, September 7, followed by a 7.1-magnitude quake on Tuesday, September 19, Mexico plans to send aid to Puerto Rico for the victims of Hurricane María.

María, the second major hurricane to hit the Caribbean last month and the most powerful to strike Puerto Rico in nearly a century, carved a path of destruction through the island after plowing ashore early on Wednesday, September 20.

On Twitter, Mexico's Ministry of Foreign Affairs wrote in Spanish: "Mexico's Government to sent aid to Puerto Rico which was affected by Hurricane Maria."

According to a press release issued by Mexico's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Mexican government will send about 30 tons of bottled water and mosquito repellent along with a Federal Electricity Commission brigade to help evaluate and mitigate the damage caused by María.

“The Mexican government reiterates its condolences to the families that suffered human and property losses as a result of the hurricane and expresses its solidarity with the people of Puerto Rico in the wake of this natural disaster,” the statement concluded.
