School students, market vendors, residents and even staff from the municipal DIF, located next to “Las Cachinches” stream (that today looks more like a river), were evicted by Civil Protection personnel of San Miguel de Allende, as a preventive measure due to the increasing of this stream’s current; however, there is no risk of flooding as it happened back in 1998 in this area.

This was confirmed by the director of the Civil Protection local unit, Alan Alvarez, who also said that it was decided to suspend “The Xuchilitos” parade, with the participation of kindergarten children.

Activities were suspended in the following schools: José Vasconcelos, Fray Pedro de Gante, Ignacio Allende, Leovino Zavala; as well as at the DIF office.
