Given the low temperatures and possible frost in the capital, Mexico City Mayor Miguel Ángel Mancera, said it will continue to support the population of the city’s zones of higher altitude.
“There are predictions that it can snow in Mexico City,” said Mancera. “We will continue to strengthen our task of bringing relief to the higher areas of the city, we will continue with our vaccination campaign while taking every precaution.”
Mancera said that through social media networks and Locatel there will be information for the public about changes in climate and Civil Protection measures.
This is because the National Meteorological System announced that in the coming hours heavy rains could be recorded along with a temperature drop as Cold Front number 45 enters the area.
The mayor recommended that inhabitants of Mexico City to be cautious of the weather, “Remind people to take precaution to avoid going to the higher areas because it is an area at risk when there is snow.”
Mexico City Civil Protection Secretary Fausto Lugo said that many parts of the city have seen winds gusting at up to 70 kilometers per hour and since Tuesday night 203 trees were felled, damaging 15 automobiles.
