Flash floods hit Guadalajara, leaving some areas under 4 m (13 feet) of water, Mexico


Heavy rain associated with Tropical Cyclone “Bud” hit Guadalajara, Mexico on June 10, 2018, producing severe flash floods in several parts of the city, including the light rain system where 40 people had to be rescued.

As reported by Mexico News Daily, water up to 4 m (13 feet) flooded the Dermatologico station on Line 1, trapping about 40 people inside the carriages. Civil Protection personnel, firefighters and locals contributed to the rescue efforts.

Authorities said one person showed signs of hypothermia and received medical treatment.

The water also entered Zoquipan and Zapopan hospitals.

A canal running parallel to Patria Avenue in Zapopan overflowed and flooded nearby areas, stranding several cars.

Several other roads in the city affected, including the tunnel on Washington Avenue, Federalismo Avenue and the city’s ring road between Melchor Ocampo and Pino Suarez.

Jalisco Governor Aristóteles Sandoval said last night that there were no reports of injuries.
