At least 30 people have died and many more have gone missing in a landslide caused by heavy flooding in a southeastern Mexican state, Mexican radio reported Monday.

The death toll was preliminary, as rescuers were still working at the site, 8 km from Villahermosa, capital of Tabasco state, Radio Formula said.

Interior Minister Francisco Ramirez Acuna and the director general of the National Water Commission, Jose Angel Cordoba Villalobos, are heading to the site, the report added.

Meanwhile, the week-long flood also ravaged Pichucalco, a town close to Tabasco's largest reservoir, Penitas, where the death toll was yet to be confirmed.
