Hurricane Dolores (1974)

Hurricane Dolores was regarded as the worst hurricane to strike Acapulco since 1938. Developing on June 13, 1974, the system rapidly organized into a tropical storm the next day off the southern coast of Mexico. Over the following day, Dolores developed an eye-like feature and attained hurricane status. With peak winds of 80 mph (130 km/h), the storm made landfall near Acapulco. Once onshore, Dolores rapidly dissipated and was last noted on June 17.

"Hurricane Ingrid was a strong Category 1 hurricane which made landfall near La Pesca, Tamaulipas, as a tropical storm. It was the ninth tropical storm and second hurricane of the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. Along with Hurricane Manuel, the combined effects from two storms claimed at least 106 lives in Mexico during September 2013, stranding at least 40,000 others in the resort city of Acapulco amid reports of widespread looting"
