The Secretary of the Navy, José Rafael Ojeda Durán, minimized the damage caused by hurricane “Delta” in Yucatán and after a tour in the eastern zone, he considered that the emergency declaration will not be necessary, since the meteor “treated us quite well , white balance, “he commented.
In a tour of the eastern coast of Yucatan to verify the damage caused by the hurricane, Ojeda Durán reported that the passage of the meteor left a “white balance” in the state and that nevertheless the damage it could have caused in that region will be evaluated. The head of Semar arrived in this eastern municipality of the State from Cancun, Quintana Roo, and in the company of Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal flew over the eastern area of Yucatan for 45 minutes, where Hurricane Delta passed.
Interviewed briefly during the work tour, Ojeda Durán said that the majority of the damage was trees and fallen power poles. He said that although the hurricane is already located in the Gulf of Mexico and headed toward the United States, naval personnel continue to work to help the families of Yucatán and Quintana Roo, where approximately seven thousand elements were deployed.
Interviewed about the power cuts, the naval command announced that they are already working in coordination with the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) to restore service in the eastern region in a maximum of 72 hours. For his part, Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal reported that water will be distributed for the victims of Río Lagartos, El Cuyo and San Felipe, as well as food rations that will be distributed by the Mexican Army. The shelters will be maintained in the coming days while the water levels that Hurricane Delta left in some places decrease.
