The level of the La Antigua river increases, PC asks not to be alarmed
Given the increase in the level of the old river as a result of the heavy rain recorded in the last few hours, it was confirmed that constant monitoring is being carried out and, in addition, citizens were asked not to pay attention to malicious information from unscrupulous people.
The foregoing was made known to the media by the head of Civil Protection and Municipal Firefighters of La Antigua Jorge Luis López Facundo.
He indicated that based on the readings carried out by the personnel in his charge, it is established that due to the recent rain that occurred during the last hours, the level of the old river is nine meters.
Therefore, he explained that people should not fear possible flooding within their communities and the municipal seat of La Antigua (Cardel).
Jorge Luis López Facundo even said that every three hours the monitoring of this tributary is carried out and thus be attentive to its evolution.
In fact, this Wednesday a meeting was held to coordinate prevention work that can avoid havoc among citizens.
In addition, citizens are recommended to ignore the apocryphal communications, spread by negligent users of social networks and that the only thing they do is cause panic among the population.
