At least 45 people have died in eastern Mexico following flash floods and landslides that saw homes swept away after rain that residents said was heavier than any they’d seen in their lives.
As rescue efforts continued on Tuesday in several mountain communities, officials warned the death toll from the weekend storms could yet go higher.
Most of those who died were in Puebla State with the remainder in the neighbouring state of Veracruz, officials said. The region was slammed at the weekend by the remnants of what had been Hurricane Earl, a category 1 storm that had earlier pummeled Belize.

Former Tropical Storm Sonia dissipated over the Mexican Pacific coast state of Sinaloa, but not before causing some minor flooding in cities such as Mazatlan and Culiacan, forcing the evacuation of around 1,000 people, authorities said Monday.
The evacuations were largely preventative and people are expected to start returning to their homes, said Sinaloa state civil defense official Gabriel Olivera.

The Pacific coast of Mexico, still smarting from the battering it took from a tropical storm last month, appears to have dodged another assault as a powerful storm moved away from the coast early Wednesday.
Conagua, the Mexican water commission, announced that the storm, formerly known as Hurricane Raymond, had been reclassified as a tropical storm. It was about 155 miles southwest of the resort city of Zihuatanejo Wednesday morning, and was moving west-southwest away from the coast at a clip of about 8 mph.

Tropical Storm Raymond is maintaining its strength as it moves away from Mexico’s Pacific coast.
At its peak, Raymond was a Category 3 hurricane that threatened to collide with the Mexican coast, a region devastated by a storm last month. But Raymond spun in place offshore for more than a day before heading out to sea Wednesday.

Raymond weakened from a hurricane to a tropical storm Wednesday and began moving away from Mexico’s Pacific coast, granting relief to a region devastated by storms last month.
