Hundreds of Tijuana residents were digging out after deadly torrents tore through the city late Wednesday and early Thursday, leaving at least eight dead, three missing and 1,000 homeless.

Two Orange County families were on the verge of desperation Wednesday night after failing to rescue their children, who are trapped in Baja California with thousands of other Americans following last weekend's storms. "I'm so frustrated. I've called congressmen, senators, even the Red Cross, but all I get are more phone numbers. No one seems to know how we can help them," Margaret Howard of Trabuco Canyon said Wednesday night.

Record-breaking rain swept through the valleys and heavy snow fell in the mountains on Wednesday as Southern California and Baja California continued to endure a prolonged siege of winter weather that may have claimed two more lives near the border. Floodwaters forced the evacuation of a mobile home park in Agua Dulce, and crews labored throughout the day to shore up an eroded levee on the San Gabriel River that threatened to give way and flood a tract of homes in El Monte.

Rains in Mexico's northwest have eased severe drought conditions in the vital agricultural and cattle-ranching region, but farm leaders say the crisis isn't over. "We've been blessed by rains. It doesn't solve the problem, but it does raise our spirits," said Hector Roman, president of the Sonora state Confederation of Agriculture Organizations.

Flooding after days of heavy rain along Mexico's Gulf Coast has forced more than 44,000 people from their homes. Tabasco state Gov. Andres Granier said several rivers had jumped their banks, flooding homes in more than 90 communities. The federal government declared a state of emergency and troops were helping rescue people. Residents expressed frustration that government infrastructure projects had not prevented yearly flooding in Tabasco. In 2007, floods killed 33 people and inundated more than 1 million homes.

Hurricane Emily grew in strength Tuesday as its outer winds and rain lashed Mexico's coastline, forcing thousands in northeastern Mexico and southern Texas to seek higher ground. The hurricane's eye was likely to come ashore early today near this small fishing village popular with Mexican and U.S. tourists. The storm has already struck Mexico once, ripping roofs off resort hotels and stranding thousands of tourists along the Riviera Maya, which includes the resort of Cancun.

Helicopters were used to drop huge sandbags on a levee and a crew of prison inmates worked to create a makeshift dam Saturday as officials in the rural border city of Presidio braced for the possibility of more water being released from a Mexican reservoir. Work also began on an effort to save a weakened levee protecting the city from the Rio Grande. Workers planned to line a section of the levee with heavy plastic anchored by sandbags to keep water from leaking through. Officials in Presidio had expected a significant drop in the Rio Grande water level by Saturday evening after Mexican officials said they would reduce the amount of water being released from the Luis Leon Reservoir.
