Marabasco River Overflows

These photos were taken in the early hours of Sunday September 8, showing the results of the rains Saturday night. The Marabasco river overflowed in the agricultural valley Cihuatlán affecting banana plantations and vegetables. Also in the city of Cihuatlan, tons of sand and mud again covered the main avenues, such as the Alvaro Obregon and Aquiles Serdan.  An estimated 6-10 inches of rain fell in 12 hours effecting much of the Cihuatlan municipality.

El Rebalse was flooded which is located a few kilometers from the county seat of Cihuatlán and close to the river. Neighbors say no Civil Protection Authority warned about the risk of flooding this weekend.

The Costalegre

I have long thought that Costalegre was an agreed upon catch word for the Costa Alegre. Now I'm finding there is another long time standard, Coastecomates. This is about that area as well.

The stretch of coastline located between Costa Majahuas and Cihuatlán is the Costalegre or “happy coast.” Others describe the Costalegre as the area between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo. Either way it is still "the happy coast". Pacific Coast of Mexico
