River Rages in Monterrey as Flood Dangers Remain

Officials in northeast Mexico urged drivers to be careful on Thursday, June 20, as heavy rain from Storm Alberto continued in the region.

Footage posted by Alejandro Zuniga, the director of operations of the Nuevo Leon Firefighters, shows the swollen Santa Catarina River rushing through Monterrey on Thursday.

On the same day, torrential rain partially washed out a nearby roadway.

Alberto made landfall as a tropical storm early Thursday before weakening to a tropical depression. The National Hurricane Center said all tropical storm warnings across Mexico were discontinued as of 10 am local time, but warned heavy rains and flash flooding could continue in northeastern areas.
