Disaster struck the town of Tlaltenango Zacatecas Saturday morning around 3 am when heavy rains that fell Thursday night flooded the Jaloco River.
The water flowed into the town causing the damage
The flood left 3 dead and 23 missing
This town is part of the same area my family is from about 15 min from the town of Tepechitlan, On my last trip to Mexico I went to the town a few times, weather like this has not struck the town in over 40yrs.
My grandfather's brother lives in the town he is 83 yr old Senon Sandoval who lived alone and got around mostly in a wheelchair. We have not heard from him yet but we pray he is not one of the unfortunate.
