The head of Conagua, Roberto Ramírez de la Parra, and Sinaloa authorities analyzed the construction of a regional hydrometeorological center, where improved local forecasts can be made to better make decisions in the prevention of harm to the people and productive sectors of Sinaloa.
In a ceremony attended by Gov. Mario López Valdez, the official explained that the vulnerability of Mexico is visible in states such as Sinaloa, where there are abundant rains from cyclones frequently, and where frost and drought can also occur.
Under these circumstances, he added, it is crucial that there are at least three regional emergency centers in the area, as there are 21 in Mazatlán, which was increased to 38 units Monday in order to provide more timely care to the region.
He also said it will allow to attend to situations of flood emergencies in Nayarit and Durango, as well as moving equipment and specialists to the towns of Baja California by sea.
In a statement, Conagua explained that among the delivered equipment are tower lights, pumping equipment and trucks to meet flood and drain desilting.
