VERACRUZ, Mexico – Mexican civil protection officials have confirmed two more deaths from Tropical Storm Arlene.
That brings the total official death toll from the storm to 13.
A farmer and his son were killed trying to drive across a flooded bridge in the town of Zentla on Friday. A relative in the car managed to escape and informed authorities.
Arlene was the first named storm of the 2011 Atlantic season. It came ashore as a tropical storm and broke apart like a water balloon over the highlands of central Mexico.
