The combined rainfall is being blamed for a massive landslide in Mexico’s Chiapas state that buried hundreds of homes.
Officials in the town of Santa Maria de Tlahuitoltepec fear that that between 500 and 1,000 people could have been affected by the disaster.
Floods also inundated large swaths of riverside communities across southern Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras.
