Among the places where work will be done are San Marcos Nocoh, Francisco de Montejo, Las Américas, Centro, Delio Moreno Cantón, Bojórquez, Juan Pablo II, Villa Magna, Residencial Pensiones, Las Águilas, Santa Rosa, Serapio Rendón, Plan de Ayala Sur expansion, Montebello, Itzimná, Cholul, Emilio Portes Gil and Salvador Alvarado Oriente, etc.
As for the temporary shelters, Merida’s mayor recalled that with the arrival of heavy rains, the shelters are open for people who need it.
