Update on Hurrican Alex - Monterrey Mexico

It appears that the border crossing is still closed for the Nuevo Lardedo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico to Laredo, Texas, United States -- the main cargo crossing between the United States and Mexico and the border crossing that serves most of the traffic coming to the United States from Monterrey, Mexico. From my "sources" (i.e. friends) who live in the area, it appears that the border crossing is still closed. The property damage to Monterrey and the surrounding towns was pretty severe from what my friends tell me; lots of shops and businesses are still closed. I've included an additional video of the hurricane damage to go along with the video that I initially posted. This one looks like it was taken at a football stadium or something.

For more information, I've included some links at the bottom of the post.
