Sergio Ramírez López, Deputy Director of Civil Protection and Fire in Puerto Vallarta, reports the only results from the 'Manuel' storm in our municipality were flooded streets.

He explained that patrols were conducted in different areas of the city, particularly in the Nogalito, Paso Ancho, Portales and Centro University de la Costa, since that's where flooding problems have occurred previously.

Nevertheless, he said that despite the rains caused by the passage of Tropical Storm 'Manuel,' the channels and streams were within acceptable levels not critical.

The rains were intermittent and some areas were more intense, at other points the rains were lighter and others where the rain stopped  for prolonged periods, so it did not cause major problems.

"We understand that the National Water Commission released water in various dams to lower levels thus decreasing the possibility of problems."

Sergio Ramírez López continues that they remained alert for landslides particularly where they have a history of problems. He mentioned that the Mascota – Las Palmas road remained open and only received some reports in the morning of minor landslides that were repaired,  thus the highway remained open.

Finally, the Deputy Director of Civil Protection and Fire in Puerto Vallarta added that the passage of 'Manuel' caused no major incidents reported, only a few puddles and some reports of damaged power lines.

The heavy rains have passed, the sky is blue.
