Tourists stand in line at a military airbase in hopes of getting a seat on a Mexican Air Force jet, in Pie de la Cuesta, near Acapulco, Mexico, Tuesday Sept. 17, 2013. With roads blocked by landslides, rockslides, floods and collapsed bridges, Acapulco was cut off from road transport after Tropical Storm Manuel made landfall on Sunday. The airport as well, was flooded. Emergency flights began arriving in Acapulco to evacuate at least 40,000 mainly Mexican tourists stranded in the resort city. (AP Photo/Eduardo Verdugo) less
