Posted 29/08/2019

A week-long maximum tide prevention alert was issued by The Civil Protection System (Sinaproc) on Thursday, August 29. It extends to 8.09 am on Thursday, September 5.

According to the statement, the maximum level will reach 18.4 feet, ( 5.61 meters).

Sinaproc asks the population to maintain preventive measures, since, coinciding with rains, the levels of rivers and streams could be increased, causing flooding in risk areas.

The recommendations of the security agency are: keep children and elderly adults under surveillance, lower the lever of the electrical panel in case of flooding and evacuate immediately to high areas; fishermen must use navigation equipment and vests.

They also ask people to avoid crossing rivers and streams that exceed knee level.
