Performing a Reverse Image Search, NM team traced the official YouTube channel “Imagen Noticias”, which carries the same video, dated July 28, 2020. According to the video description, these were scenes related to the incident of Jakulpan river in Nayarit (Mexico), where cattle were washed away. 

There is also a news article, published on July 28, 2020, on the same incident. 

The same video has been uploaded on a Twitter post, dated July 28, 2020, with a caption: “WORLD – Cows are washed away by flood after a high volume of rain caused by the hurricane #Hanna in Compostela, Nayarit, Mexico.”

Another publication in Mexico also carries the same video, dated July 28, 2020, claiming that it is from Hanna, in which thousands of people were affected because of the torrential rains, followed by a storm.

Earlier, NewsMobile debunked the viral video when it was shared as that from Kerala and Pakistan
