Thousands still waiting for aid in flood ravaged Mexico

Days of rain and mudslides have turned this Mexican town into a wake zone. Widespread flooding in the town of Tixtla in southwest Mexico has drowned homes and stranded many of its residents. Across the country, more than 100 people have died from the heavy rains unleashed by Hurricane Manuel last week. Some people have lost everything. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) FLOOD VICTIM, AUSENCIO MORALES, SAYING: "Some homes are flooded. Some lost all types of things such as animals, clothes, papers etc." In Xaltianguis marines arrive and are delivering aid. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) FLOOD VICTIM, OMAR NAVARRETE, SAYING: "The troops are supporting us. We thank them for helping to deliver supplies to this town because we are in need. We are cut-off on from both Acapulco and Chilpancingo. There are families with short supplies." The weather left more than 22,000 homes damaged in the area and as many as 20,000 people remain in shelters.
