After the Atoyac River, two more rivers have been swallowed by large sinkholes in Veracruz, Mexico.
The level of the Tliapa and Tlacuapa rivers has already decreased by 50% due to two large craters ‘irrigating’ the water underground.
Now, two other rivers, flowing through the exact same mountainous region of the eastern state of Veracruz, Mexico also began to dry up due to the formation of sinkholes.
In other words, three rivers have been swallowed by giant cracks in less than two months in the same area.
The flow of the Tliapa and Tlacuapa rivers has decreased by 50% because the water is lost underground through two huge holes in a cascade.
The channels form in the mountainous Chocamán and Calcahualco and come together in Rio Seco flowing in the central region of Veracruz.
The first cavity is located at the place known as the Stone Bridge. Another crack in the ground has opened up a kilometer below just after the confluence of the two streams.
The ground of Veracruz is too unstable.
