Patricia hurricane caused heavy rains on the coast and in the volcanic region of Colima where the risk was higher against the possibility of landslides on the slopes of the volcano.
An estimation shows that 200 families in the volcanic region were affected by the fall of these avalanches.
The rain was sufficient to mobilize 12.5 million cubic meters of ash that descended at a speed of 20 km / h, through the ravines, rivers and streams.
In the city of Quesería, in the municipality of Cuauhtemoc, these avalanches of mud and stone have exceeded riverbeds, invading the streets.
The consistency of a lahar is like liquid cement and its resistance was able to break the sidewalks, leaving hundreds of trapped vehicles.
In addition, the mud is entered in the houses, damaging furniture.
People affected have helped one another all day and night for cleaning.
To remove these mudslides in the streets, he had to use excavators.
