Abstract 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.
