Mexico – Landslides triggered by Tropical Storm Earl’s remnants have killed at least 40 people in Mexico, officials said late Sunday, as a new storm threatened the country’s Pacific coast. Hardest-hit was the central state of Puebla, where 29 people died, including at least 15 minors, as landslides buried several homes in the state’s northern mountains. Another 11 died in similar circumstances in the eastern state of Veracruz. Earl swept in from the Caribbean at hurricane strength Wednesday, striking just south of Belize’s capital. It hit Mexico as a storm on Thursday and eventually weakened to a tropical depression. Even in its weakened state Earl carried a deadly punch over the weekend.
