At least 38 people were killed in landslides over the weekend in eastern Mexico after Tropical Storm Earl hit several states.

In Puebla, 28 people were killed, and 10 died in Veracruz. "My government will have all resources available," Puebla Gov. Rafael Moreno Valle Rosas tweeted. "We will not rest until all the damages caused have been repaired." On Sunday, the National Hurricane Center said "remnants of Earl are expected to produce an additional two to four inches of rainfall over portions of the Mexican states of Guerrero, Hidalgo, Oaxaca, Puebla, Tlaxcala, and Veracruz through tonight. These rains could result in life-threatening flash floods and mudslides."
