Tragedy in Oaxaca

Earlier today, a landslide in a tiny, rain-soaked town in Oaxaca buried some 300 houses. One thousand people are feared to have been killed.

Update: Evidently, the death toll is being revised significantly downward. The state government of Oaxaca is presently reporting four deaths and 12 disappearances. Ulises Ruiz, who's not a paragon for honesty, we should add, says that the number could rise, but that the initial estimates were significantly off the mark.
