Heavy Downpours In Guatemala

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; In Antigua Guatemala when it rains it pours

Havoc all over Guatemala as flash floods, mudslides and heavy rains pour all over the country due to low pressure tropical storm in the Pacific ocean. Follow the weather updates posted under the hashtag #ClimaGT on Twitter to get an idea of all the damages cause by the heavy rains. I have shared some photos related to La Antigua Guatemala on Facebook, in case you only want to see images from the area.

This picture is the typical vista your see around the main square as soon as the downpour begins. Three quadrants are used to shelter one self from the rain.

    Boy oh boy that looks bad… I’ll be arriving Friday night for 12 days in my beloved Guatemala…. I sure hope it’s gonna be better y then and I get my usual beautiful sunshine that Guate is so well known for. We have about 6°C here in Germany right now, so at least it’s gonna be warmer than that. Keeping my fingers crossed for warm sunny weather…
