The death toll from Hurricane Grace in Mexico has risen to 11

Heavy rains in Mexico on Saturday passed Hurricane Grace, which quickly turned into a tropical storm, killing three people in the state of Puebla (central), bringing the number of victims to eleven.

“We have counted three deaths: one in Huasinango and the other two in Talala,” the Puebla governor’s office said Sunday.

On Saturday, Hurricane Grace struck eastern Mexico, killing at least eight people, including five children from the same family, causing flooding and landslides, damaging homes and shops.

The hurricane then weakened and caused widespread damage as it moved inland beyond the heights in the center of the country.

In Salaba, the state capital of Veracruz, the roads have become muddy.

One of the victims, a mother and her five children, were buried on a hillside in their small home.

Mexican authorities are still on high alert in anticipation of flooding of rivers, streams, mountains and mountains, especially in Veracruz.

President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrado offered condolences to the families of the victims.

The president confirmed Friday night that about 8,000 members of the civil defense, military and electricians were on standby in the aftermath of the storm.
