At least 13 people died and hundreds more were left homeless after a category 4 tornado whipped through Ciudad Acuña, a Mexican border city.

The twister flipped cars, leveled homes and sent a baby flying in a seven-block area early Monday morning following heavy rain in the city of approximately 135,000. Some people who were driving when the tornado touched down got trapped in their vehicles, several of which had been slammed into buildings or had their hoods ripped off. A yellow bus was left flipped on its side in ruins.
