VILLAHERMOSA, Mexico -- Flooding from a week of rain has forced hundreds of thousands of people to abandon their homes and seek shelter from muddy waters that covered an estimated 80 percent of Tabasco, a state on the Mexican Gulf Coast, including most of Villahermosa, the capital, officials said. Mexican military and government workers sent helicopters and rescue boats yesterday in an attempt to rescue tens of thousands of people trapped by floodwaters that reached the rooftops in low-lying neighborhoods.

VILLAHERMOSA, Mexico -- The newly homeless men and women of this flooded capital patiently line up to appear on a local TV station that has been broadcasting their messages day and night. They speak quickly, mindful of others waiting. They say they're at a shelter and are OK. Some hold up handwritten signs with cell phone numbers and beg relatives to call. One woman, eight months pregnant, asks viewers for any information about her missing parents. They know it's a long shot. Few buildings have power for TVs. But hope is all that remains for many of the estimated 1 million residents driven from their homes by flooding that still covers more than three-quarters of the Gulf state of Tabasco.

Everyone agrees that it opens sinuses.It is Tabasco sauce, the fiery stuff made from red capsicum peppers by the McIlhenny family of Avery Island, La. This year the sauce is 125 years old. And to mark the occasion, Paul McIlhenny and Barbara Hunter have written "The Tabasco Cookbook" (Clarkson Potter, $14)

Along with goggles and gas masks, U.S. soldiers in Iraq are carrying another item into battle - mini bottles of Tabasco sauce, packed in their food rations. The fiery pepper sauce, produced since 1868 by the McIlhenny Co. on Avery Island in Louisiana, has spiced up military meals for more than a century. "One of my distant cousins sent a case of Tabasco to Ulysses S. Grant when he was president," says Paul McIlhenny, company president. That still counts, because Grant was a Civil War general, he says.
