1 person missing, vehicles stranded after heavy rainfall in Querétaro

One person is missing and two communities are cut off after heavy rainfall in Querétaro.

The missing person was swept away by floodwaters in the municipality of El Marqués, where the communities of Atongo and Presa de Rayas are inaccessible.

Fifteen students aboard a bus had to be rescued after it was stranded in water that left the vehicle more than half submerged.

There was also flooding in the western part of the municipality of San Juan del Río where at least 40 vehicles were stranded in floodwaters after storm drains were unable to keep up with the volume of water.

Lower temperatures and rain are being recorded in a large part of the country due to cold front no. 6. Rain is forecast in nearly all 32 states but intense conditions are predicted in Veracruz, Tabasco, Oaxaca and Chiapas.
