Hundreds of dead birds found along Zihuatanejo beach, Mexico

Hundreds of dead birds died in the strip of sand of La Ropa beach, as well as in planters, ridges, restaurants and houses bordering that spa, this port of the Costa Grande. Tourists and restaurant owners located on the beach were surprised to see a large number of dead birds, especially zanates and magpies. They explained that some animals were found alive, but died minutes later, while others showed difficulty to fly. They indicated that the area had not been fumigated, so they ruled out intoxication as the possible cause of massive mortality. In addition, they noted that birds feed mainly on what people give them. José Antonio Solís Bucio, a taxi driver at the La Ropa beach site, reported that, very early on, public service workers were preparing to collect all dead birds before tourists arrived. “I counted in a space of the entrance to the beach like 35 dead birds,” he said. So far no authority on Ecology or Environment has made any statement about the situation.

Massive mudslide kills a mother and her 5 children in Mexico

File photo shows the aftermath of a mudslide in Mexico.

A mudslide caused by severe weather in Mexico has killed a mother and her five children, authorities say.
The incident happened on Thursday during heavy rains in the eastern state of Veracruz.
The 28-year-old mother and her children aged 12, 11, seven, three and 18 months, were killed in their sleep shortly after their home was hit by a landslide, said Ricardo Maza, the emergency response chief at the Veracruz civil protection agency.
The father, who was injured in the incident, helped in the desperate search for his family members, Maza added.
Heavy rains in Veracruz have caused damage to homes and businesses, and authorities are still trying to fully assess the damage done.
In recent years, Mexico has been hit hard by devastating weather that has triggered landslides.
Earlier this year, several people were killed by landslides in the central and eastern parts of the country.
In 2013, 101 people were killed and dozens more went missing after a landslide engulfed a whole village in the southern state of Guerrero.
