On the other hand, according to local media, the overflow of the Taxhimay dam in Villa del Carbón, State of Mexico, would have caused flooding in Tepejí del Río, Tezontepec de Aldama, Tlalhuelilpan and Tlaxcoapan.
This, after the Conagua drains the dam due to the excessive levels it presented and the rain forecast in CDMX and Edomex, since it captures rainwater from the Valley of Mexico through the Central and Oriente emitters.
