Cancun Tourists Stranded

By  | 

Thousands of stranded tourists have now been flown out of Cancun, Mexico, but thousands more are still trying to escape the Caribbean resorts pounded for two days by Hurricane Wilma.

Tourism officials said about 22,000 foreign tourists remained in the area.

Elsewhere in Cancun, citizens wait for gasoline still in short supply while some stores and businesses un-boarded their windows and reopened.
