ACAPULCO, Mexico — Rain and winds lashed Mexico's famed Pacific resorts Tuesday as Hurricane Calvin gained strength and moved up the coast. At least 25 people died in storm-related accidents, the government said.
About 11,000 people were forced from their homes by floods, the government news agency Notimex reported. Fifteen rivers overflowed their banks.
Nine of the dead were in the southern states of Oaxaca and Guerrero, where flooding forced thousands from their homes along the coast.
Sixteen more were reported killed in the states of Mexico and San Luis Potosi, where heavy rains caused mud and rock slides high up in the mountains of the central plateau.
