On the highway that goes from Puerto Escondido to the city of Oaxaca, at the height of the area known as Macahuite Blanco, the rains caused a sinkhole that prevents the passage of vehicles.

Juchitán de Zaragoza .— As a result of the recent torrential rains that hit the coastal strip of the state, damage to roads and highways has been recorded, making vehicular traffic between tourist destinations in the region difficult. 

The municipal president of San Pedro Mixtepec, Javier Cruz Jiménez, reported that at kilometer 135, on the highway that goes from Puerto Escondido to the city of Oaxaca, at the height of the area known as Macahuite Blanco, the rains caused a sinkhole that prevented the passage of vehicles. 

The sinkhole covers 80% of the highway, so Caminos y Aeropistas de Oaxaca (CAO) carries out preventive work until the bad weather passes.

Por su parte, las autoridades de San  Miguel Panixtlahuaca informaron que están incomunicados  por deslaves y derrumbes en la ruta que va a Juquila. 

En esta zona varias familias perdieron sus cosas por las lluvias, por lo que pidieron el apoyo para los damnificados y liberar los caminos.
