Twin Storms Batter Mexico

Twin storms are battering the east and west coasts of Mexico, killing at least 21 people so far and forcing thousands to flee their homes.

Hurricane Ingrid is forecast to strike Mexico's Gulf coast Monday morning or early afternoon with winds of 120 kilometers per hour.

The powerful storm could dump as much as 65 centimeters of rain on parts of the east. Ingrid already has soaked several coastal towns and sent thousands heading for safety.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Manuel has brought heavy rains and high winds to Mexico's Pacific Coast. At least 21 people have been killed by landslides, flash floods and collapsed buildings, mainly in the southwestern state of Guerrero.

Forecasters predict more heavy rain and life-threatening weather before Manuel is expected to break apart over land Monday.
