Director Joe Francis is stranded in Mexico with his family after the country’s airports were shutdown due to hurricane Patricia.
The “Girls Gone Wild” filmmaker has hunkered down in his igh-rise apartment in Puerto Vallarta with his twin daughters and girlfriend Abbey Wilson, according to TMZ.
Joe attempted to leave the country via a private plane, but was unable to travel because the airports were shut down as the hurricane approached.
He said they were asked to evacuate their building, but instead decided to tape up the windows of the apartment so they can ride out the storm there.
Joe shared a photo on Instagram of his view, writing, “This is a live photo of Puerto Vallarta Mexico. Hurricane Patricia will make landfall here within the next few hours.
Please pray for the our friends, our families and the wonderful people of this city.” Hurricane Patricia was recorded as one of the world’s most powerful storms, but weakened significantly as it hit Mexico.
