Residents in neighboring Chetumal are facing similar problems due to the downpour over the weekend. Reports from various news outlets reported continued flooding which have increased into several different areas in the city. As a result, the Ministry of Education and Culture suspended classes at all levels in Othon P Blamco and Bacalar.
The situation will not likely improve very soon for the area as reports have indicated that there will be a decrease in the amount of rainfall caused by the cloud bands generated by the remnants of Tropical Wave Number 44, located in the Campeche coast. We found several images and even a video posted on Youtube by Itamar Jimenez where people are seen pushing a vehicle and other wading in high water.
It has been reported that water was ten centimeters high is some areas while at others it exceeded one meter. It has been further reported that in the Flamboyanes neighborhood, several trees fell due to softening of the ground, and in the nearby Ecological Park, a warning about a crocodile that lives there led to permanent patrols, including military personnel, to locate the animal and avoid any incident with residents of the area. In addition to this, the ADO Bus Terminal flooded resulting in travelers being accommodated outside the facility on Sunday.
