Between October 28 and November 5, 2007 torrential rains, more than 1,200 millimeters of water in a three-day period, poured down on Tabasco and Chiapas, Mexico. A high tide in the Gulf of Mexico prevented the rising waters of the principal rivers from emptying into the sea. 25,900 square kilometers, 80% of the plain of the state of Tabasco, were inundated, including 700 towns and most of the capital city, Villahermosa.
The damages are huge.
TABASCO, MEXICO, November 7, 2007 - US-based ACT member, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA), is working with the National Presbyterian Church of Mexico in responding to the flooding in Tabasco, Mexico.
Days of rain and unusually large waves off the coast have inundated Tabasco, a low-lying and oil-rich state on Mexico's tropical Gulf coast, causing the largest natural disaster in recent Mexican history.
