Two drowned, two missing in downpours in C Mexico

Soldiers evacuate flood victims in a neighborhood after heavy rainfall in Mexico City September 7, 2009.

Two people were drowned and two others missing in downpours that hit central Mexico on Sunday, according to authorities.

Torrential rains flooded 20 neighborhoods, including at least two municipal buildings in the suburb of Tlenepantla in Mexico City.

A 74-year-old woman and a 50-year-old man were confirmed dead while fire crews were still searching for one man and one woman who were reported as missing.

Authorities have evacuated 1,500 people from their homes in the state of Mexico where the country's capital city is situated.

The National Meteorology Service reported that 84 millimeters fell on Sunday and said 18 of Mexico's 32 states would experience strong or very strong storms within the next 24 hours.

Mexico is currently under the influence of degraded hurricane Jimena, which moved on-shore last week via the northwestern states of Baja California Sur and Sonora.

However, the rain has ended a drought in July and August that has killed crops estimated to produce 1.5 million tons of corn.
