By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The water level crested on Monday night at about 7:00 pm in San Ignacio after heavy rains flooded the Macal River. Water has been receding since then but on Tuesday morning the San Ignacio Market still has water in it.
“It’s still inundated. It’s receding but very slowly,” said San Ignacio-Santa Elena Mayor Earl Trapp at 9:00 am on Tuesday.
The market vendors were relocated on Tuesday to the Falcon Field. For now, even the businesses in the area which had to move out their goods and close remain closed.
“The water covered all the amphitheater. The entire ground of the Welcome Center was covered. It got to the floor of the Welcome Center building.”
The Welcome Center building floor is at least three feet above the ground.
Water also covered the Norman Broaster Stadium which he advises shouldn’t be used for football games this coming weekend.
“The Broaster Stadium still has water in it up to this point.”
Mayor Trapp said it will take a while for the water to recede all the way down to under the low-lying wooden bridge.
