After dark in the flooded Mexican beach resort of Acapulco on Tuesday, looters haul stolen goods - everything from televisions to Christmas decorations - above knee high water.

Stores were ransacked after floodwaters wreaked havoc in the Pacific port hit hard by torrential rains that have killed at least 57 people across Mexico.

Crowds of stranded tourists waited at a military base to be airlifted.

(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) LISETTE RIVAS, MEXICO CITY RESIDENT, SAYING:

"We've been here for approximately nine hours. We are told there will be airplanes all night and all day tomorrow but we are seeing that things are not improving. We can hold out but we have children with us. It's going to start to rain and people are starting to lose hope."

Tens of thousands of people were trapped when two tropical storms, Ingrid and Manuel, converged on Mexico from the Pacific and the Gulf, triggering floods and landslides.

In the Guerrero capital Chilpancingo, residents used buckets to clear mud and water from their homes and a school is now a make-shift shelter, a day after the river burst its banks

Mexico's president has ordered a house-by-house check on people's safety in Guerrero and the government said it had $490 million in emergency funds available.

The U. S. National Hurricane Center reports Manuel strengthened to a tropical storm again on the Pacific coast on Wednesday, moving toward the Baja, California peninsula.
