Mudslide buries village, new hurricane lashes Mexico after storms killed at least 80
ACAPULCO, Mexico (AFP) - A resurgent hurricane lashed Mexico's north-west coast early Thursday after twin storms killed at least 80 people nationwide and buried a village under a massive mudslide, leaving dozens more missing.
Hurricane Manuel was "hugging" the coast of Sinaloa with winds of 120 kilometres per hour, threatening to spark flash floods and landslides, the US National Hurricane Center said.
Earlier this week, Manuel pummeled the south-western Pacific coast with tropical storm force while Ingrid barreled across the east in a dual onslaught unseen since 1958.
The storms damaged bridges, caused rivers to overflow and flooded half of the Pacific resort of Acapulco, stranding tens of thousands of tourists who sought airlifts while looters ransacked stores.
