Civil Protection and local authorities requested food, hygiene and other items to help the victims, while many residents had to seek temporary shelter and risk losing all their belongings.

According to Donald Diogenes, the Mayor of the city, the floods were caused by the lack of cleaning of the canals by the Ministry of Public Works.
