The death toll continues to rise in southern Mexico in wake of days of heavy rain and mudslides.
The latest mudslide occurred Thursday morning in the town of Villa Hidalgo Yalaag in the state of Oaxaca. This landslide killed 2 people when their house collapsed in this mudslide.
This brought the death toll to 32 across southern Mexico.
This landslide came just two days after a huge mudslide in Santa Maria de Tiahitoltepec prompted fears that hundreds of lives were lost. The death toll from that mudslide has been lowered to 11.
Another landslide Tuesday occurred at Amatan in the southern state of Chiapas. Amatan lies about 40 miles south-southeast of Villahermosa in the neighboring state of Tabasco.
In the lead-up to the landslide, rainfall at Villahermosa was about 8 inches within 24 hours, and the hills in and about Amatan may have had much more. Thus, rain-soaked steep hillsides likely broke loose owing to the loading from excessive rainfall.
After a summer of torrential rain unleashed flooding and mudslides throughout southern Mexico, much of the region will experience a break from the rain this weekend and into early next week before scattered showers and thunderstorms return to the region at midweek.
