Torrential rains spawned by Ingrid and Manuel, which converged on Mexico from the Gulf and the Pacific over the weekend, triggering flash floods and landslides. With a tropical disturbance over the Yucatan Peninsula headed toward the same Gulf coast hit by Hurricane Ingrid, the country was experiencing a double hit, at a time that it was struggling to restore services and evacuate those stranded by the flooding of the previous weekend.
