Severe flash floods hit Coahuila and Durango, Mexico


Heavy rains hit the border region between the Mexican states of Coahuila and Durango early August 5, 2021, causing destructive flash floods.

Ragging floodwaters swept away numerous cars and severely damaged at least 50 homes.

One of the worst affected areas was the city of Torreón, Coahuila where a stream running through parts of the city overflowed.

The flood was exacerbated by the illegal construction of homes and the accumulation of garbage and debris in the stream.
