According to CMORPH data for September, 2011, precipitation exceeded 400 millimeters and precipitation anomalies exceeded 100 millimeters in the Rio Chico Basin. This rainfall accumulation resulted in one fatality and a collapsed bridge on the Pan-American Highway on Rio Chico. As shown in this image, the upper watershed of Rio Chico (Volcan), depicts areas with high susceptibility to landslides. In the same image it is possible to visualize precipitation anomalies higher than 100 millimeters.
