CIUDAD ACUNA, Mexico - Officials in the Mexico-Texas border town of Ciudad Acuna say the death toll from Monday's tornado has risen to 14 after the body of a baby ripped from its mother's hands was found.

City government spokesman Edgar Gonzalez said Tuesday that he had no additional details on the baby, who was in a carrier. Ten adults and four infants died in Monday's tornado, and a family of four is still missing.

Gonzalez said about 4,000 homes had some kind of damage, including the 800 destroyed in the city of 125,000 that's across from Del Rio, Texas.

Gonzalez says 300 people were hospitalized, including 10 who were in serious condition with broken bones.
