The City Council, through the Department of Urban Development and Administration Modernization, headed by José Guillén, is working on the removal of various trees that have given way due to the rains registered since yesterday.
Specifically, the municipality has registered, in the last 24 hours, a total of 74 liters per square meter according to AEMET, which estimates that the yellow alert ends in the municipality at 4:00 p.m.
"As happened in previous episodes, although the trees are healthy and strong, the accumulation of large amounts of water causes the soil to soften and this causes some specimens to lose their stability and to overturn," explains Councilman José Guillén.
Specifically, the Parks and Gardens Service, through the STV-Actúa staff, is working, during the day yesterday and throughout the morning today, in the removal of various trees and fallen branches in places such as El Infante, La Flota , Barriomar, Puente Tocinos, San Basilio and Huerto Pomares, among others.
For these tasks, the staff has octopus trucks, chainsaws and baskets, among other tools.
The area in which it operates, in addition to removing the specimens, is supervised to avoid any possible danger.
"The goal is always to preserve the safety of our neighbors.
Our green areas are in constant maintenance, but, in addition in these cases, once the episode of rains has passed, a team is in charge of reviewing the condition of the large specimens to guarantee their state and health, âsays the councilman.
The Parks and Gardens service works in a coordinated manner and through an action protocol for this type of incident in order to recover normality as soon as possible and effectively.
The concessionaire company STV-Actúa has, throughout DANA and the following days, a minimum emergency service made up of professionals dedicated to the different actions.
Incidents are dealt with both through the TUMURCIA application, the company's 24-hour emergency telephone number (620 86 02 34), and through the Local Police, the Murcia City Council and the concessionaire's social networks (@parquesdemurcia) .
