What was believed to be the heaviest rainstorm in 90 years flooded large sections of this northern Mexico state capital by Sunday, killing at least 40 people and leaving more than 5,000 homeless, authorities said. Another 30 people were reported missing by the Red Cross. The storm hit Saturday night dumping more than 5 inches in the area around Chihuahua City, about 200 miles south of El Paso. It was still raining in the city of 600,000 late Sunday.

Like many other Mexican farmers in the drought-ravaged border state of Chihuahua, Enrique Berjes is wondering where President Vicente Fox will find the water to repay the nation's enormous debt to Texas. Certainly not from the dried-up reservoirs, rivers and wells that have kept him and 90% of the area's farmers from even planting this spring, their 10th year of drought. And yet Fox has promised to unveil a plan this week by which Mexico will start paying down the enormous water deficit the U.S.

At the same time, the PRI, as the ruling party is universally called, claimed a sweeping victory over the left-of-center Democratic Revolutionary Party in a vote for governor of the central farming state of Michoacan.

We in the blue states hear from the talking heads on Fox News and MSNBC that many of you in the red states are so distressed about the outcome of the elections that you would like to secede from the Union. Now, it seems that at least six of you - Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia and North Carolina - have submitted enough signatures (25,000) on petitions to the White House website to merit a formal response, with more petitions on the way. We wish you the best of luck with this.

Re "Rights Groups Decry Mexico Rape Law," Aug. 29: Chihuahua, Mexico, rape law "provides for reduced sentences for rapes considered to have been 'provoked' by the victim." Does this mean the men in Chihuahua, like many men in the U.S., see women as sexual objects only? That a man is helpless when he sees this sexual object? Boy, oh boy, some men's egos are just that--the egos of boys. B. Anthony Secrist Los Angeles

The man who managed the Sylmar warehouse where authorities made the largest cocaine bust in history two years ago was sentenced Monday to life without parole. U. S. District Court Judge Terry J. Hatter Jr. told James Romero McTague that he was guilty of "one of the most horrendous crimes that has ever been committed against the American people." McTague, 43, was one of seven people arrested in September, 1989, after the discovery of 21.4 tons of cocaine stacked in boxes in the warehouse.
