However, there were four reports that initially generated panic among citizens, highlighting a landslide of rocks in the vehicular route of the Paseo del Centenario, as there were large stones that fell to the ground.

“A small collapse was reported, but it was not like that, but it was the stones that accumulate there in what is the garrison of the centennial walk, because they ran a little bit with the water, only a sanitation was made there and they were collected “

Elements of Civil Protection went to the place to determine that it presented no danger to those who pass through there and then went to the department of public services to raise the rocks that were left there.

Among the other reports made is the explosion of two transformers that did not get out of control and in the stagnation of a rainwater collector.

Regarding the flooded areas, Ruiz Gastélum mentioned that they were where they usually occur in each rainy season, such as the Historic Center, Waves, Cruz Lizárraga avenue and the Golden Zone; however, by noon many of these places had their water levels lowered.

Saturday’s first rains of the season and the streets of the city center were affected.

The rainfall lasted about an hour and the water level rose to the sidewalks, people had to remove their shoes to cross the streets of the center, which became large streams.

Among the crowd that sought to take shelter from the rain, complaints were heard, because the center has presented these problems for many years and although the pipes were recently fixed, the roads continue to flood.
