Flooded streets, full of sediments and the collapse of streams, were registered in the Macuto and Naiguatá parishes, after heavy rainfall during the afternoon of this Friday, as a result of the passage of the tropical wave Fred through the Caribbean.
The Tanaguarena - Naiguatá road section was the most affected by the collapse of streams and drains, due to lack of maintenance, as well as the volume of sediments caused by the rains, as well as the increase in the channel of the Uria river, in the Naiguatá parish.
"There has been no material damage or loss of life so far," Álamo de Macuto avenues, Interconmunal de Naiguatá and some stretches of Caribe and Caraballeda are reported to be flooded, said Captain Manuel Palma, director of Municipal Civil Protection.
He stressed that the rains caused havoc towards the eastern part of the Guaireño coast, generating sediments in the roads, "which are being removed by heavy machinery and special equipment from the Mayor's Office of Vargas and the Governor's Office of La Guaira."
He called on the communities to be attentive to the rains, take the necessary security measures and notify the authorities of any risky event.
