The City Council of Cartagena maintains seals in Bahía Bella and the Algameca Chica to guarantee the safety of the neighbors in the face of flood risks (13/09/2019)

The mayor of Cartagena, Ana Belén Castejón, has approached in the early morning of this Friday, September 13 to the municipal sports hall of Wsell de Guimbarda to check the status of the 130 people who had to be during the past morning evacuated from Caravaning Villas and relocated in the aforementioned municipal facilities, given the danger that their homes were running due to heavy rains during the night.

Castejón, accompanied by the vice mayor, Noelia Arroyo, and the second deputy mayor, Manuel Padín, wanted to launch a 'message of tranquility to the citizenry', remembering that the evacuation plan designed to deal with adverse weather forecasts has worked and has allowed to maintain the safety of citizens.

In the early hours of the morning, a checkpoint was held in Bahía Bella, where also at dawn it was attempted, with the collaboration of the UME and Firefighters, to evacuate homes at risk of flooding due to the possible overflow of the Rambla de El Albujón, but ' Since the danger was not imminent and the neighbors did not want to leave their homes, the city council chose to keep the checkpoint, the same in the Algameca Chica ', as explained by the first mayor.

The mayor said that so far, the most affected villages have been those of the Mar Menor, 'in some it has reached 200 liters per square meter, an amount to consider, which shows that all the measures we have come adopting these days were few.

From here, therefore, recommend that they continue taking the necessary precautionary measures until the official agencies do not say otherwise, that is, they remain in their homes and do not leave except in cases of extreme gravity, for which you can also resort to 112 '.

As for the bus lines and roads that remained closed this morning, a circumstance that could change throughout the day, the following stand out:

Bus lines with problems passing through cut ramblas: 3, 4 and 6.

Lines without service: La Manga, Fuente Álamo, Mazarrón and Roche.

Soon line 24 will be put into service (Pozo Estrecho - La Palma - Cartagena).

With regard to road cuts that remain early: Roundabouts of Severo Ochoa, Ramón y Cajal, Barriada Virgen de la Caridad, Tentegorra, 1900 and Rambla de Benipila, as well as the roads of Canteras, Sifón, de la Mine to Lobosillo, El Albujón to Las Lomas, Residencial Nueva Aljorra, El Albujón to La Aljorra, Pozo Estrecho La Puebla and La Aparecida, the La Manga highway at the Punta Brava-Los Alcázares exits and the Departure from Los Urrutias.

Also the accesses to Navantia remain cut.

Ana Belén Castejón, who has thanked the work of the media and the coordinated work of public administrations, municipal services and security forces, said that 'we have shown that we are prepared to give security to all citizens who need it, and from the town hall we will continue to inform the moment as the situation is modified, making the news known through the municipal website and official networks'.

After the visit to the Sports Pavilion, they have continued their journey in the direction of Los Nietos, to be interested in the neighbors they have also had to leave their homes and spend the night at the school in the town of Mar Menor.

At 12.30 the mayor announced that the coordination committee would meet in the Security Park to make a diagnosis of the situation, calling the media at 13.30 in the Press Room of the City Hall to Make the news known.
