It’s been a scary night for Joe Francis, Abbey Wilson and their twin daughters Athena and Alexandra. Joe and his family got stranded in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico ahead of Hurricane Patricia. Joe was attempting to leave via private plane in Puerto Vallarta this afternoon when airports were shut down.
Joe and his girls are now hunkered down in their high-rise apartment in the city. About 7 hours ago he shared the photo above, writing “This is a live photo of Puerto Vallarta Mexico. Hurricane Patricia will make landfall here within the next few hours. Please pray for the our friends, our families and the wonderful people of this city.” He even called in to TMZ and described the situation there. He says they were asked to evacuate but he didn’t have faith in the shelter structures holding up, so they were taking their chances in the apartment, taping up windows.
Have you been following the hurricane updates? I’m still trying to wrap my head around just how massive it is. And the side by side comparisons to Katrina are staggering. And the path could wind up dumping a ton more rain on Texas, where they are already suffering from devastating flooding! What a mess. I hope the damage is minimal and that everyone stays safe. Our thoughts are with everyone in Patricia’s path!
