The purpose of our project is to analyze the causes, human and natural ones, of the floods in the city of La Plata during the past April 2nd. Apart from determine the natural and human causes of the floods, our research question has to do with finding out if the fire in a distillery near the city had something to do with the severe floods. We worked with atmosphere protocol and gather information in situ and from the internet. We found that the lack of waterworks, intense rainfall and high demographic growth in the last ten years are the main causes of the flood. We could not state the relation between the fire and the flood in a clear and unquestionable way.
