Sixteen patients died in Tula, a city in the Mexican state of Hidalgo, after floods hit a hospital of the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS).
There are still some people, although few, in the flooded neighborhoods of that city, and authorities are trying to rescue them in boats with the help of the Armed Forces.
Although the help by the Army, the Red Cross and state and municipal authorities is flowing well, it is taking too long for many.
Groups of volunteers in several areas in Tula are distributing food and coffee free of charge to the victims.
In Ecatepec, the San Andres River overflowed and hundreds of homes were flooded, an affected resident from the Hank Gonzalez community said. Authorities reported that at least 15 communities, where 120,000 people are living, were affected by heavy rains on Monday afternoon. The government of the state of Mexico informed that only in Ecatepec, some 800 homes were damaged due to rains, 100 of them with major damages and 700 with minor damages.
Other rivers also overflowed.
