Given the proximity of ‘Celia’ to the coast of Michoacán, PC asks to take forecasts


Morelia, Michoacán, June 21, 2022.- The Government Secretariat through the State Civil Protection Coordination invites Michoacans to continue with prevention and self-care measures in the face of the effects of tropical storm “Celia”. Said meteorological phenomenon located on the coast of Guerrero, will cause heavy rains in a large part of the state of Michoacán during its trajectory, which could generate landslides, increase in the levels of rivers and streams, overflows in high areas and floods in low areas. That is why the population is asked to remain attentive to weather conditions and follow the recommendations that have been made available to the civil protection authorities for these cases. • Take extreme precautions in the presence of strong winds and pay special attention to buildings made of flimsy material. • Take extreme precautions for vehicular traffic on highways and rural roads, fords and mountain bridges. • Take extreme precautions against gusts of wind, take refuge in houses and buildings of solid construction. • Do not drink liquids or foods that have been in contact with contaminated or flooded water. • In the event of imminent danger, vacate the area immediately and do not attempt to store your belongings. • Consider evacuating your home if you live in an area that is susceptible to landslides. • Listen for sounds made by moving debris. • Be alert for sudden changes in water levels and turbulence. • Have an emergency backpack on hand, with water, non-perishable food and important documents sealed in plastic bags. • Avoid puddles and flooding by not littering. • Keep the street and sidewalk in front of houses clean. • Avoid leaving sand, gravel or any construction material unprotected in the street. It can be washed down the sewers. • Don’t try to cross streams. • Be very careful around tall structures like signs, power poles, and trees. They can fall. • Avoid sheltering under trees. They attract lightning. • Do not handle metal items during an electrical storm. • Prepare a family first aid kit in case of an emergency. • Give constant maintenance to the drainage system, drains and gutters to avoid puddles. • Do not leave power cords or extension cords on the ground where they can come into contact with water. • During a severe storm, avoid leaving the house if it is not necessary. • Unplug electrical appliances and turn off gas outlets if the rain intensifies or the water level inside the house begins to rise. The foregoing in order to avoid, as far as possible, damage to health, physical integrity and family assets. Likewise, remember that for the report of risk situations, accidents and any eventuality, the 911 emergency telephone service is available, of which you are invited to make responsible use.
