The remnants of Hurricane Paul killed two people in northwestern Mexico on Thursday, authorities said, bringing the death toll to at least four from the storm.

A spokesman for Mexico's civil protection agency in the northwestern state of Sinaloa said two people were found dead in the municipality of Navolato, one of the worst-flooded areas during Paul's passage through the region earlier this week.

The spokesman could not confirm details, but El Universal newspaper reported the victims were a couple whose truck was swept away by a swollen river.

Televisa news channel reported a drowned man was found dead in a canal in Navolato. His death could not be confirmed by authorities.

The Mexican beach resort of Los Cabos escaped serious damage from a cyclone for the third time in two months when Paul skirted it on Wednesday and blew toward the mainland.

High waves striking the Baja California peninsula earlier this week killed a Mexican fisherman and swept away a U.S. tourist, who is presumed dead.

Paul strengthened to a hurricane in the Pacific Ocean as it headed toward the Los Cabos resorts on the tip of the Baja California peninsula, but lost steam over the mainland.
