According to the analysis by staff of the Executive Committee for Flood Control in the Sula Valley (Comisión Ejecutiva para el Control de Inundaciones del Valle de Sula), the Ulua River is showing an increase in the flow rate above safe levels.
Forecasts from the National Weather Service (NWS) warn of rain for the next 48 hours in the West and the Sula Valley.
The Early Warning System from COPECO noted that the amount of rainfall recorded during the weekend generated saturation levels in some vulnerable areas which would involve risk, demanding constant monitoring.
COPECO reminds the public that if they observe cracking soil, falling rocks, or small landslides, to immediately notify first responders or local Municipal Emergency Committees.
The hurricane and rainy season in Honduras is at its height, and it is recommended to clear obstructions from drains and gutters, and remain alert of any potential threats for flooding and landslides. The Honduras hurricane season ends on November 30th.
