Rains cause floods and cut off towns in San Miguel de Allende

For safety reasons, merchants located on the edge of the stream were evicted.

The intense rains that fell in the state of Guanajuato, caused the overflow of the San Carlos riverbank and the vent of the Del Obraje dam, in San Miguel de Allende.

At least 8 communities were partially cut off due to the increase in rivers, streams, and canals. 

The families living on the banks of the Cachinches stream were alerted by Civil Protection to the possibility of eviction if the riverbed levels continue to rise.

For safety reasons, merchants located on the road in the municipal seat were evicted since it is located on the edge of the stream. 

Floods were also reported in the communities of Landeta, La Estación, Rancho Viejo, Fracción de Lourdes and Corral de Piedra.

For the moment, the Municipal Civil Protection Council remains alert and monitoring all the dams and embroideries before the forecast that it will continue to rain in the Guanajuato and Querétaro mountains.
