Veracruz flood repairs to cost US$115mn (Mexico)
Mexico's southeastern Veracruz state government has said it will need some 1.5bn pesos (US$115mn) to repair roads, bridges and other public infrastructure that was damaged during recent floods, local paper Milenio reported.


Tropical storms Frank and Hermine, which hit the state in August and September respectively, caused widespread damage to the state's infrastructure.


Some 121 road stretches and 48 bridges are damaged, according to Silvia Dominguez, head of the state civil protection office. Interruptions have been reported on federal and state highways Paso del Toro-Acayucan, Alvarado-Santiago-Tuxtepec, Cosamaloapan-Tlacotalpan and Tlacotalpan-Amatitlan.


The floods are forecast to continue for at least two more weeks, according to national water authority Conagua. In August alone, Veracruz received double the average amount of rainfall received annually in the entire country, Conagua said.
