According to the first reports, the rain started at the edge of 6:25 p.m. and the amount of water registered caused the drainage to be insufficient. In the Calacoaya area of Atizapán, the level rose to 60 centimeters, with some vehicles being trapped.
The same happened in the Periférico Norte, at the height of Santa Mónica, in Tlalnepantla, where the overpasses were underwater.
