“I am aware of the increase of rains in the country that have caused soil saturation,” the president wrote in a Twitter post. “I am in constant communication with the governors. Maximum coordination and support to attend to any affectation. The people have someone to attend to them and protect them!”
Throughout this week, heavy rains have affected the city of Caracas and several other regions in Venezuela. Torrential rains caused the collapse of the asphalt on the Francisco Fajardo highway in Caracas and the explosion of the electrical substation in El Ávila.
Incidents of cracked or collapsed road surfaces on several highways of the country due to the intense rainfall in the last few days accompanied by heavy thunder and lightning were also reported.
The explosion in the electrical substation in the hills of El Ávila National Park caused blackouts in some areas of Caracas and La Guaira. However, the problem was quickly resolved, and electrical services were completely restored.
