"In the state of Oaxaca, at least 12,000 homes were damaged, but this number will certainly climb in the coming hours", Murat said.

Oaxaca Gov. Alejandro Murat said in a statement that the death toll in his state rose to 76, and officials have reported that four people died in the Gulf coast state of Tabasco.

And an estimated 2.5 million people are in need of aid.

After Mexico's strongest natural disaster in living memory struck on Thursday night, killing 96 people and devastating parts of Oaxaca and Chiapas States, and Hurricane Katia swept ashore early Saturday, causing mudslides and flooding, the foreign ministry said all help was needed at home. At the moment residents are renovating destroyed homes and small businesses. "Several thousands of public servants of the Federal Police, the Navy, the Civil Protection ... have been sent to the affected area where they are distributing food and blankets".

"The president ordered them all to be in Chiapas and Oaxaca today to supervise and coordinate the reconstruction work and [provide] assistance to all the people who have been affected", he said.

Pena Nieto's spokesman said the president would supervise the delivery of food aid and blankets during his trip, but did not specify where.

While President Donald Trump never responded to the country's offer, Mexico's foreign secretary had been in communication with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott about the aid and sent a detailed note of its offer to the State Department on August 28.

"Given this situation, the Mexican government will channel all available logistical support to the families and communities that have been affected in Mexico and has informed the Texas and U.S. governments that, unfortunately, on this occasion, it won't be possible to provide the assistance originally offered to Texas in late August in the wake of Hurricane Harvey", the foreign ministry said in a statement. It was the strongest quake in the country since 1985.
