OAXACA, Mexico — Rescue efforts resumed Wednesday for 12 people missing after a huge hillside collapsed on a town in Mexico's rain-soaked southern state of Oaxaca, while a landslide in a neighboring state killed a dozen people.

The government delivered blankets and other supplies to survivors and other who fled their unstable homes for fear of more mudslides in Santa Maria de Tlahuitoltepec. Many sheltered under makeshift tents on the hills.

The landslide early Tuesday caused nationwide alarm after local authorities initially said hundreds could be dead in the remote town, which had been blocked off by slides and a washed-out bridge.
