report Associated Press

By JUAN ZAMORANO Associated Press Writer

LLANO DE PIEDRA DE TARRAZU, Costa Rica (AP) -- Though the hurricane has headed out into the Pacific, the flooding and mudslides it left behind have claimed at least 44 lives in Costa Rica -- making Cesar the deadliest hurricane to hit here in recent years.

This coffee-growing village was especially hard-hit, with at least 10 people killed. One man lost his wife and four children in the weekend storm. On Thursday, the body of his mother-in-law was pulled from the mud.
