Mexico searches for victims of deadly Storm Earl

Emergency workers in Mexico are searching for survivors after landslides killed dozens in the wake of Tropical Storm Earl. The worst-affected state was Puebla in central Mexico, where at least 28 people were killed after torrential rains set off mudslides.

Puebla Governor Rafael Moreno Valle said dogs had been brought in to search for those missing. Officials said some outlying areas had not yet been reached.

At least 40 people have been confirmed dead after Tropical Storm Earl moved over Mexico on Saturday. Earl had earlier hit Belize and Guatemala in Central America.(BBC,2016)
