Hundimiento Zona 2 (1)

    Prev Next

    Hundimiento por socavación del agua en la Zona 2 de la Ciudad de Guatemala.
    No se puede decir aún qué pasó porque no han terminado los análisis por parte de la Coordinadora Nacional para la Reducción de Desastres (CONRED); estos establecerán como está el colector de drenaje para saber si este mismo fue la causa y se están haciendo análisis de suelo para determinar si sus características han intervenido, en conjunto a los volúmenes de agua, en el repentino hundimiento.
    De momento se pondrán barreras para que paredes no colapsen por lluvias y, de igual manera, se rodeará agujero para evitar que si llueve, el agua no se filtre por allí.

      sorry to tell you this is all too real, check out this lower angle photo you will be able to see pipes for water mains and drains. No utilities are run underground in Guatemala they run on elevated cables, no natural gas pipes.

      Finally in this next pic you can see power lines droping into the site, as well as street sewage main on a different angle. I assure you this is no photoshop it is trully horrible what hapened. It is the second sink hole to appear in a 2 mile radius. Sadly enough both sink holes have taken lives, on the first a complete house swallowed and an entire family, on the second one, a taxi, and a couple people while walking in the rain in the darkened street. local press release
