Genaro Redondo, mayor of Riohacha, La Guajira, spoke on Mañanas Blu about the flood emergency
that have been recorded due to recent rains.

There are several neighborhoods in Riohacha that are affected by floods and in some avenues they are removing fallen trees.

“The situation that Riohacha has today is the situation that many territories are also experiencing. Today we are facing a phenomenon and we have already been preventing this. We are organizing all the drainage so that these waters can evacuate quickly. Not the entire city is flooded, however, since 4:00 in the morning The waters have been permanently evacuated and the levels have been dropping,” explained the president.

In the face of this serious emergency, the community is asked to remain Be alert and follow the instructions of the authorities.

Most affected neighborhoods

Within the neighborhoods that we have affected, approximately more than ten are experiencing flooding. What is most worrying is the stagnation of water that exists in some neighborhoods and that is where we are working with the firefighters today. There are some neighborhoods in Riohacha that are below sea level, especially those in commune four, Nuevo Horizonte and Villa Campo Alegre, and the problem is that the water cannot leave easily,” said the mayor.

It must be said that until this Thursday no public calamities have been reported in official or state entities. However, the Palace of Justice has been affected, due to expansion works that allow water to enter more easily.
