    Two-thirds of Mexico’s territory is in drought after almost 20% less rain than normal fell between January 1 and September 15, National Water Commission (Conagua) officials said on Tuesday.

    Francisco Javier Aparicio Mijares, Conagua’s chief of engineering and binational water issues, told attendees at a meeting of the Droughts and Floods Inter-Secretarial Commission that 66.6% of the country was experiencing drought of varying degrees of severity at the end of August.

    Common Law Marriage in Mexico: Could it Affect You?
    In ancient Greek and Roman civilizations marriages were private agreements between individuals and families. Community recognition of a marriage was, by-and-large, the qualifier, and the state had only limited interests in assessing the legitimacy of marriages. ...

    In 1928 Mexico’s Federal Civil Code adopted a provision granting partial recognition of the rights of women and children of private agreement marriages. Under the Federal Civil Code Mexico recognizes a concubinage relationship, and for the surviving partner to receive the benefits, that partner must prove a concubino status. However, not all Mexican states have ratified this federal law.

    Why might the concubinage relationship be important to expatriates living in Mexico?

    Tropical Systems: Humberto, Imelda, Jerry, Kiko, Lorena and Mario
    The Atlantic and Eastern Pacific basins remain in high gear as hurricane season hits a mid-September peak. The National Hurricane Center launched advisories on four systems Tuesday, and NHC assigned four names—Lorena and Mario in the Eastern Pacific and Imelda and Jerry in the Atlantic—in the space of 18 hours. As of midday Wednesday, there were six active systems in the two basins. That ties the total from late September 1992, which is apparently a record, as tweeted by NHC’s Eric Blake and reported by weather.com’s Jon Erdman.
