Monday Civil Protection began pumping out excess water from area stream and rivers, along with cleaning out storm drains to help prevent flooding.

Sergio Lopez, Head of Civil Protections, said that the amount of trash in area streets and rivers are adding to the problem by blocking the city drainage systems.

Most of the rain moved out of the area Monday night throughout much of the state.
