The winter season 2019-2020 began the past September, however, the weather has become colder during the last weeks. Civil Protection Department issued a couple of recommendations, since cold days and/or rains are expected until May of next year, as well as the arrival of 53 frontal systems
Cold fronts can interact with the humidity of tropical cyclones and produce torrential rains. Meanwhile, its usual effects are frost, snowfall in mountainous regions, strong wind gusts, abrupt temperature drops and winds.
Therefore, it is recommended to:
· Call 911 in case of emergency in your home or in your community,
· Do not cross streams on foot or in vehicles that have a high level of water,
· Avoid driving or driving through flooded areas or strong flooding,
· Extreme precautions when driving (keep flashing lights on, use a seat belt, slowdown in areas with waterlogging, obey traffic signs);
· Stay warm, especially for older adults and minors; and
· Do not leave home while heavy rains occur, unless it is very necessary.
Another important point is to be extremely cautious with any heaters, ovens, stoves, kitchens and fireplaces emit carbon monoxide that when inhaled in high quantities is toxic, as well as to avoid introducing bonfires in closed areas.
