At least 60 incidents occurred yesterday because of the heavy rains. There were floods and landslides throughout the Greater Metropolitan Area. There were overflowed rivers, creeks, and tributaries. Strong winds took down trees. The heavy rainfall was due to the entry of sea breeze and high morning temperatures.
The sewer system and soil were over saturated adding to the flooding so first response teams and Municipal Emergency Committees were activated. There are protocols in place in case the need to evacuate arises.
The most tragically affected area was in Guadalupe were five homes were completely destroyed and two children and one adult had to be rescued.
The National Emergency Commission has left active a green alert for the south Pacific, northern zone, and Central Valley and a yellow alert in the central and northern Pacific. Four adults and four children remain in a shelter that was opened in Purral.
