Agatha Guatemala Photos

Photos of Tropical Storm called Agatha, in June of 2010. Lake Atitlan in Guatemala is surrounded by large mountains covered with vegetation; the rains started on Thursday or Friday last week and fell almost continuously ending on Monday.

The rills grew to become gullies, they turned into streams, and then formed rivers, and then unfortunately the waters became dangerous as they:

1. Changed Course
2. Became bigger
3. Meandered
4. Flooded

Panajachel River next to the city of Panajachel on the shores of Lake Atitlan, this river feeds into Lake Atitlan.

Interesting view of paradise Andy - must be nice living in those wonderful conditions.
Just a jab - hope you do not offend easily !
Good photos, and unfortunate about the damage. But, that is the risk you get in conditions like that when a large amount of rain falls.
Similar things happened here in Georgia when we received a vast quantity of rain in a short period of time. Bridges washed out, roads washed out, homes destroyed. But, recovery was quick , as the means to resolve these things are much more readily available here vs. there.
That is the beauty of traveling, is it not?

The people dig themselves out faster here in Guatemala than in the USA.
