The National Civil Protection System (Sinaproc) has issued a prevention, surveillance, and monitoring notice.

Until this Saturday, March 25, there will be maximum tides that reach about 17.4 feet high (5.30) meters, which have been recorded since Tuesday and are estimated to end at 6:40 pm on  Saturday

The National Emergency Operations Center (COEN) warns that if the maximum tide coincides with the rains, the levels of rivers and streams could increase, causing vulnerable flooding.

Among the recommendations made by the security entity is to avoid activities on the Pacific coast.

Likewise, artisanal fishermen are advised to use navigation equipment and personal flotation devices (life jackets).
