Hurricane “Michael” generated rains, strong winds and high tides in Quintana Roo, causing the massive arrival of sargassum to the coasts of places like Cancún and Mahahual, Isla Mujeres and Cozumel.
Alfredo Arellano Guillermo, head of the Secretariat of Ecology and Environment (Sema), said that the massive arrival of sargassum is expected to decrease considerably during this month and during November, due to the change of currents of the season.
The municipal president of Isla Mujeres, Juan Carrillo Soberanis, indicated that Michael did not impact the island. However, the currents generated by this hurricane brought a considerable amount of sargassum to the coastal areas, so he made a call to society asking for their collaboration to clean up the beaches.
“The gusts of wind that were felt in Isla Mujeres were intense, and the waves brought a lot of sargassum that was concentrated in these areas of the municipality, so it was necessary to carry out cleaning work to keep our beaches free of seaweed. in order to maintain a good image towards tourism, “he added.
Meanwhile, Kerem Pinto Aguilar, director of the Federal Maritime Terrestrial Zone (Zofemat), reported that in Playa Centro approximately three and a half tons of sargassum were removed, while in Playa Norte an approximate of four tons was accumulated. The seaweed was removed with the help of specialized machinery.
He argued that with these actions, the municipal government reaffirms its commitment to continue offering both islanders and visitors clean white sand beaches and turquoise blue waters for healthy recreation.
