Lluvias en Chiapas

The heavy rains that occurred in Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas, caused the death of a woman of Chinese origin.

The Chinese woman was swept away by the current of water after the motorcycle she was riding skidded in the Residencial Hacienda subdivision.

The Chinese woman was trapped under a compact vehicle and could not get out.

Meanwhile, dozens of vehicles were swept away by the water in various parts of Tuxtla Gutiérrez due to flooded streets and the overflow of streams such as the Totoposte.

The Totoposte tributary descends from the upper part of the municipal capital of Tuxtla Gutiérrez and overflowed at various points in its path.

Municipal Civil Protection announced that so far the Sabinal River that crosses the city from west to east is being monitored because the rains continue.
