ACAPULCO, MEXICO: Tropical Storm Manuel edged onto Mexico’s Pacific coast Sunday while Hurricane Ingrid swirled offshore on the other side of the country, as heavy rains and landslides caused at least 13 deaths and led authorities to evacuate thousands.

Stormy conditions led some communities in affected states to cancel Independence Day celebrations planned for Sunday and today.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Manuel began to weaken as soon as it made landfall near the port of Manzanillo during the afternoon, but remained a threat to produce flash floods and mudslides. In the southern coastal state of Guerrero, six people died when their SUV lost control on a rain-swept highway. Landslides killed two people in Guerrero, and the collapse of a fence killed one person in Acapulco.

Rains from Ingrid caused landslides that killed three people in the central state of Puebla, and a woman died when a landslide buried her house in Hidalgo state.
