He said that these land conditions are mainly present in the municipalities of Tijuana, Playas de Rosarito, Ensenada, Tecate, and San Quintin, so recommendations are mainly for people in these communities.

The official highlighted that he has followed instructions by Governor Marina del Pilar and through several water agencies in each municipality drainage inspections and desalting of sewers have taken place in order to deal with these weather phenomena. There is also constant coordination with municipal administrations and Civil Protection to address every emergency.
