Landslides in Mexico

Description

October 1999. For almost a week a cyclone raged in Mexico, spawning storms which caused huge downpours. The amount of rainfall that week was several times higher than the annual norm. Dozens of small towns and villages were destroyed by landslides. Under the rubble at least 500 people died, 300 are missing. The small town of Tapayula, in the state of Puebla, suffered the most, 22 people were buried alive in a landslide that destroyed the church.
