La Málaga is a fairly densely populated community that is unfortunately located at a hydrological bottle neck in San Salvador. Runoff coming down the San Salvador volcano from the Santa Tecla area fills streams as it gathers speed. La Málaga is a bend in those rivers and is quite narrow considering the quantity of water that needs to flow through there during a storm surge.
