Veracruz Gov Javier Duarte said through his official Twitter account yesterday that three people died in a landslide in the town of Coscomatepec about 62 miles (100 kilometers) south of the state capital Xalapa. Two others were injured in Xalapa.

Earl was downgraded to a tropical depression as it continued westward into the mountains of central Mexico. Civil protection officials in Veracruz were warning residents in several areas about rapidly rising river levels and urging them to head to higher ground.

Earl struck Belize earlier this week as a Category 1 hurricane.
