At least seven people are dead after a landslide early Tuesday in southern Mexico.
Heavy, early morning rains caused a landslide just above the town Santa Maria Tlahuitoltepec in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. According to the BBC Oaxaca's governor stated that between 100 and 300 hundred homes were buried.
It was difficult to reach the area because of blocked roads and unstable ground limited rescue efforts using heavy machinery, Reuters reported.
It has been the worst rainy season that many parts of Mexico have ever dealt with.
