Fatalities as Fernand makes landfall in Mexico
More than a dozen people have died in eastern Mexico, in landslides triggered by heavy rain caused by tropical depression Fernand.
Thirteen people were killed when mud engulfed their homes on hillsides in Veracruz state and another man drowned after being swept away by fast-flowing floodwaters in neighbouring Oaxaca.
Fernand made landfall near the Atlantic port city of Veracruz on Monday and weakened as it moved north-west.
