Heavy rains have impacted the states of Tabasco and Chiapas (more than 200mm rain in 24hrs) with Mexican authorities reporting 19 people dead and around 20,000 homes damaged, bringing the estimated death toll in Mexico and Central America to about 200. Rains over the past few days have triggered landslides, blocked roads, and the overflow of five rivers in 20 municipalities from different regions. The Copernicus EMS Rapid Mapping Service has been requested to produce satellite maps which will support the assessment of damage and losses.
