The Next Day At Mandalay Bay
Focus Turns To Las Vegas Strip Hotel Following Deadly Attack
Tuesday, October 03, 2017
A lot of factors will be examined and scrutinized in the wake of the horrific events that unfolded in Las Vegas on Sunday night as a gunman opened fire and killed nearly 60 people and injured many more. Factors such as the shooter’s motive, how and when he began planning the attack, and did people close to him suspect anything? And, of course, there will be much discussion about the gun laws that are currently in effect and how to make it more difficult to obtain such weapons.

CLIA says: The tragedy in Las Vegas heightens the need for proactive security measures in hotels and we will continue to offer our members good information and resources to maintain the safety of their guests and staff.

Islands throughout the Caribbean communities are beginning a long road to recovery from several major hurricanes that have ravaged the Atlantic. But Puerto Rico in particular is facing what local officials have described as a full-blown humanitarian crisis, with devastation they call “apocalyptic.”

Less than two weeks after Hurricane Irma made landfall on the island, Puerto Rico was hit by Hurricane Maria, the worst natural disaster the island has seen in nearly a century.
