VERACRUZ, Mexico (AP) — Mud and sand slid off the side of a hill after days of heavy rains and swept over two homes, killing eight children and five adults in a town in eastern Mexico, authorities said Tuesday. Officials said two people were rescued alive from the buried houses in Veracruz state.
Those killed included a woman, her five children ranging in age from 2 to 11, and her mother. A week-old baby, an 8-month-old boy and another child also were among the dead, civil defense official Ricardo Maza Limon said.
The two homes were hit late Monday in the town of Manzanatitla, which is in a mountainous area about 200 miles (320 kilometers) east of Mexico City.
Heavy rains have been falling across southeastern and central Mexico in recent days.
Tropical Storm Fernand caused landslides and flooding that killed 13 people in Veracruz state last month.
The state civil defense department has not released the names of the latest victims.
