The heavy rains that have been registered in recent days have caused incalculable material losses throughout the country, further reducing the quality of life of Venezuelans who face the consequences of the humanitarian crisis caused by Maduro’s dictatorship on a daily basis.
In Aragua, heavy rainfall caused flooding and the La Trilla river in Ocumare de La Costa Municipality. Several families of Cumboto, La Trilla and Las Monjas had to leave their homes, while other people were trapped on the road by the landslides.
In Mérida, the heavy rains caused severe damage to the electrical substation that feeds Tovar, leaving the area without power, as well as displacing many families and destroying homes.
In addition, the military of Nicolás Maduro’s regime have installed ‘alcabalas’ (checkpoints) to impede the passage of humanitarian aid. Similarly, the population of Guaraque is isolated because its roads were completely covered by landslides caused by the rains.
In Anzoátegui, the rains keep the northern part of the state on alert because of the increase in the level of the Neverí river and the La Culebra ravine. The civil protection organizations remain deployed in the area. So far only flooding of roads and houses has been reported.
Meanwhile in Zulia State, heavy rains have caused flooding in the Colón Municipality in the Souther Lake Maracaibo region caused by the overflow of the Chama River. They report that the La Gallera bridge in the La Fortuna sector and the Caño Blanco bridge located in the El Paraíso sector of the Urribarri Parish of the Colón Municipality, was disabled by heavy rains and that more than 279 hectares of plantain are under water.
