STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • NEW: Three storms, including two tropical systems, walloped the country
  • NEW: Some 24 states have been impacted by storm damage
  • NEW: The new death toll is not thought to include an additional 68 people still missing

(CNN) -- The death toll from widespread flooding in Mexico in recent days has increased to 110 people, the country's interior minister said Sunday.

Three storms, including two tropical systems, walloped the country over the past week, sending rivers over their banks, spurring mudslides and washing out roadways.

Some 24 states in the country have been impacted by storm damage, the Interior Ministry said.

The new death toll is not thought to include an additional 68 people still missing in one Guerrero town ravaged by a mudslide.

Massive storms ravage Mexico

Over the weekend, Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto spoke about the damage in La Pintada, saying there was little hope now of finding survivors.

He said the reconstruction phase has already begun.

"This is the work, not just for the state of Guerrero, but for the whole country," he said.
