Rescuers searching for survivors of a mud slide that may have killed up to 500 people in Puerto Rico last week have concluded there is no hope of finding any, Gov. Rafael Hernandez Colon said. The governor said efforts to find survivors in Mameyes, 45 miles southwest of San Juan, will stop, but that authorities will continue to search for bodies among the 275 homes that were buried under tons of clay, rocks and debris last Monday.
