In Nuevo León the weather conditions have been very changeable, on Monday very high temperatures were registered while on Tuesday an intense electrical storm flooded several streets of the Monterrey Metropolitan Area.
This last situation made several citizens believe that the state’s dams were filled, but this was not the case, because although water was provided, the amount was very little.
Well, according to the National Water Information System, it indicated that the José López Portillo “Cerro Prieto” dam has a filling percentage of 14 percent.
Meanwhile, it was reported that the Cuchillo Solidaridad “El Cuchillo” dam is 53 percent full; little more than half.
Lastly, the smallest dam in Nuevo León, Rodrigo Gómez “La Boca” has 70 percent fill.
The state’s dams collected little water despite the intense storm that occurred on Tuesday.
