A crack in the main sewage canal of two colonias in the state of Mexico flooded over 200 homes with raw sewage.
Mexican officials are reporting that the sewage canal of San Isidro and La Providencia cracked after heavy rains early Sunday morning. Approximately 500 residents were affected with no reports of death and minor injures to some that fled their homes when sewage surged inside.
The crack has allowed over 6,000 cubic meters per second of raw sewage to pore into the area. Late Sunday night authorities were trying to contain the sewage and mend the crack. The main highway to the area remains closed.
