The governor of the state of La Guaira, José Alejandro Terán, reported this Saturday night that for this Sunday, October 29, the use of beaches and spas in the entity is prohibited.
The measure was adopted due to the natural phenomenon of swell that occurs on the beaches of the state of La Guaira.
Likewise, Terán reported that the departure of ships is also prohibited until the situation normalizes.
“We met with the corresponding national authorities on climate matters and they warned that the event was caused by the atmospheric depression caused by Hurricane Tammy that affected the northern façade of the Caribbean Sea,” explained Terán.
Terán explained that waves of two or more meters high were recorded in the entity, affecting many parts of the coastal axis of the region.
“We make a very special call to vacationers to avoid visiting our beaches this Sunday, October 29, because the sea level is predicted,” urged the Governor.
Likewise, he reported that the event caused little damage to the material, especially to the infrastructure of the tourist beach such as La Guaira karting, the Macuto theme park, the Camuri Chico soccer stadium, and others.
“We are assessing all the material damage to be repaired as soon as possible,” he said.
Governor Terán pointed out that the measure will be implemented starting this Sunday until the condition of 100% waves on the beaches of the state of La Guaira. “For us, the most important thing is to protect the lives of ourselves and guests,” he concluded.
