In the last 30 hours, the Ministry of Communications and Transportation (SCT) has recorded 24 landslides and fallen trees that have obstructed federal highways in Jalisco caused by the passing hurricane “Willa” and tropical storm “Vicente”, reported the Centro SCT Jalisco.
Much of the damage has occurred in the coastal area. “Approximately 50% of landslides occurred on federal highway 200, on the El Tuito-Melaque-Cabo Corrientes section, and the other two stretches affected are: Autlán-La Huerta-Barra de Navidad, Guadalajara-Zacatecas and Guadalajara Jiquilpan ”
According to the agency, the landslides have not been considerable, so they have been attended to quickly, and there have been no reports of injury.
The authorities will maintain a surveillance operation on the federal highways during the time in which the rainfall lasts.
There are 40 crews of 10 elements each that cross a network 2,200 kilometers as well as 322 bridges, informed Salvador Fernández, General Director of the SCT Center.
