Most of them died after their houses were flooded by tonnes of mud and rocks.

A whole hill collapsed near Huauchinango, sweeping down on a nearby village.

Officials were forced to close a section of the main federal motorway to the capital Mexico City due to heavy rain  in the region.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
