Praia, Aug 31 (Infopress) – The president of the National Civil Protection and Fire Service (SNPCB) today assured to Inforpress that all preventive measures have already been taken for the passage of a deep depression, which should have a greater incidence in the Sotavento islands.
Renaldo Rodrigues said that all municipalities are already prepared and the civil protection agents are already on alert, waiting for the evolution of the situation and more accurate information.
Among this preventive measure, the official indicated the issue of small boats that were warned not to go to sea, alert to populations living in risk areas, such as buildings close to the stream, slopes and those living in metal houses (can houses).
Parallel to this, he pointed to the issue of high voltage cables with clandestine connections, which according to Reinaldo Rodrigues, may constitute risk situations. He reported, however, that there is a possibility of military transfer to some islands depending on the evolution of the tropical depression, in case of reaching the Barlavento Islands.
