MEXICAN GOVERNMENT MAKES PROGRESS RESTORING NORMAL CONDITIONS TO BAJA CALIFORNIA SUR IN THE WAKE OF HURRICANE ODILE



More than 5 thousand tourists have been evacuated via Mexican government airlift system
The Federal Electricity Commission and the National Water Commission both report positive efforts in restoring much needed resources and services





The National Civil Protection System reports the installation of shelters for more than 11 thousand people




Claudia Ruiz Massieu, Secretary of Tourism of Mexico and Coordinator of the Government's effort for the economic reactivation and reconstruction of Baja California Sur post Hurricane Odile, in partnership with the General Director of the Federal Electricity Commission, Enrique Ochoa Reza, and the General Director of the National Water Commission, David Korenfeld Federman, report that due to the collaboration of the three levels of government there has been great progress in the area. The Secretary of Tourism also recognized the armed forces' efficiency and loyalty in supporting and guaranteeing the safety of the population.




Ruiz Massieu further noted that the increased frequency in airlift service has allowed 5 thousand tourists to safely return home. Additionally, she stated that the work of the Federal Government led to implementing measures that guarantee the ultimate evacuation of all tourists, allowing them to return to their respective countries.





The Federal Electricity Commission reported on the progress in restoring electrical services. At 7:00 hours, 23 percent of electricity had been restored in La Paz; whereas 60 percent had been restored in the northern area of the state. Los Cabos, the most affected municipality, has seen a slower pace in re-establishing electricity; therefore, additional personnel and equipment have been deployed to help in the relief efforts. Currently, emergency electricity plants are being installed in the area.




Furthermore, the National Water Commission has intensified efforts in working to meet their goal of restoring fresh water supply to the state. The latest reports show no visible damages to the infrastructure or wells. 





The National Civil Protection System reported the installation of shelters for more than 11 thousand people that were displaced from vulnerable areas. Reports state that food supplies are guaranteed for those affected. 




Additionally, the Army, Marine Corps and Federal Police maintain a strong presence in the state to assist in safeguarding the population.





Ruiz Massieu announced that the government will be holding daily joint press conferences to keep the nation and its citizens informed on the conditions and restoration efforts in the state of Baja California Sur.

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST






Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.




Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
