The aim of this research is to determine the causes of the severe flooding in Buenos Aires, the capital city of Argentina. In order to do that, I took into account the amount of precipitation fallen on April 2nd over the city, the historical average of precipitations for the same period and the urban conditions of the city as regards water drainage. My conclusion is that floods in Buenos Aires are due to excessive population and lack of public works.
