Misplaced Geography?

Having devastated much of the Yucatan Peninsula, Hurricane Wilma has re-emerged over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico and begun gaining strength once again. It currently stands at category 3, and is expected to hit Florida later today. And a few hundred miles to the east, Tropical Storm Alpha--the record setting 22nd named storm of the season--drenched parts of the Dominican Republic. Alpha's remnants are expected to continue on to the Bahamas but are not considered a threat to the U.S. mainland.

Meanwhile, citizens and trapped tourists in Cancun have begun looting stores in a desperate bid to stay alive.

Looting out of desperation?!?! Where do these people think they are? New Orleans?
