The general secretary of the municipality of Puerto Vallarta, Víctor Bernal, said that they carry out monitoring work on the streets of the municipality as a preventive measure against possible rains and ruled out any effect on the city or on individuals.
Personnel of the municipality of Puerto Vallarta carry out tours to check the drainage system and remove garbage from the streets that was dragged by the rain last night.
Personnel of civil protection and firemen were in charge of the inspection of water level at local rivers and waterways, although no risk was reported in any of them and it is expected that before noon the State Civil Protection unit will know the final results of Willa and its consequences in Jalisco.
