Nicaragua: Rains Cause Unprecedented Situation

MANAGUA - The increase in the water level of Lake Xolotlán has caused an unprecedented situation in Managua and other municipalities of this city, where authorities are preparing to face all possible scenarios.

According to the most recent official reports, 6,907 people remained in 16 temporary shelters, and city neighborhoods have been evacuated as lake waters flooded into nearby urban areas.

If the lake's water level keeps rising and it continues flooding, further evacuations will be carried out, possibly on a mass scale, according to the most pessimistic predictions.

For now, the central government is paying close attention to the evolution of this emergency situation in the city, and all state institutions and several social organizations are ready to face any future event, different sources affirm.
