In this

paper a dam break simulation of “La Parota”, Guerrero, Mexico is presented by means of CARPA system which

is based in a 2D WAF-TVD (Weight Averaged Flux – Total Variation Diminishing) high resolution finite volumes

numerical scheme. With the obtained results it is possible to draw maps containing the depth, velocity and affected

zones, which are very useful in the civil protection area.
