Heavy Rains Cause Devastating Floods in Mexico's Oaxaca Region
June 18, 2021
Heavy rains in the Mexican state of Oaxaca caused the Los Perros river to overflow. It turned streets in the city of Juchitan into rivers. People waded in the waist-high waters, as soldiers helped them evacuate. A woman named Magnolia told reporters she was able to take a bag of clothes and a bottle of milk for her baby, and nothing more. The rains are expected to continue for the next several days, which could mean more flooding for a region that’s already struggling.
