    The network of stations and the Provincial Meteorological Center (CMP by its Spanish initials) of Ciego de Ávila guarantee permanent monitoring of weather variables to keep the population informed and facilitate decision-making by the Defense Council in the presence of tropical storm Elsa that keeps the territory in the Alarm phase.

    The M.Sc.  Orlando Córdova García, main specialist of the CMP Forecast Group, explained that two teams, made up of four specialists, work daily 12-hour to follow the evolution and trajectory of this event, which constitutes the fourth of the current cyclonic season.

    Observers from the province's network of meteorological stations, distributed in the towns of Júcaro, Venezuela, Enrique Varona and Cayo Coco, also guarantee the vitality of the hydro meteorological early warning system, through constant monitoring in their demarcations, for days of up to 36 hours.

    Rafael Pérez Carmenate, provincial delegate of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment (CITMA by its Spanish initials), highlighted that the subgroups of that organism, in the defense councils, provide information on studies of danger, vulnerability and risks (PVR) for the plans of disaster reduction in the different instances.

    The province and the municipalities have PVR studies on sea penetration, intense rains and strong winds, resulting from a correct evaluation of risks and vulnerability, both of the population and the economy, in order to achieve acceptable and consistent levels with the response capacity of the country.

    PVR studies also make it possible to establish priorities for the allocation of resources and decision-making in times of great economic constraints.

    The relocation of more than a hundred houses in the coastal settlements of Punta Alegre and Júcaro, during the period 2017-2021, positions the inhabitants of these localities in better conditions to face natural disasters and adapt to climate change, Pérez Carmenate stressed.

    CITMA workers guarantee the protection of economic goods and, in the particular case of the Bio-food Research Center; they ensure the feeding of the animals during the days of damage.

    After the passage of the meteorological phenomenon, the specialists will evaluate the environmental impacts of the scourge of tropical storm Elsa to identify the damage to biodiversity, water, soils and forests.
