Mèrida, Yucatàn, (May 31, 2021) .- On the eve of the start of the hurricane season, the meteorologist of the Institutional Committee for the Attention of Extreme Meteorological Phenomena (Ciafeme) of the UADY, Juan Vázquez Montalvo, called on the population to apply plans contingency to prevent risk situations in homes.
“We are in time to take the forecasts. At this point, we must have our family contingency plan as a business and institutional, and when it is a real threat and they give the yellow alert, put them into practice immediately, ” explained the specialist, who specified that the season runs from June 1 to November 30.
“Those who have not done so, I invite you to do so because this season does look to be more active than others,” added Vázquez Montalvo, while anticipating that for this year the formation of cyclones is expected to be constant and a serious threat to Yucatán.
