The Emergency Coordination Center has terminated the pre-emergency situation due to orange level rains and storms in the province of Alicante and the interior south and the coast of Valencia.
Along these same lines, an hour ago, the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) has converted the orange level warnings into a yellow level.
“The Emergency Coordination Center has withdrawn the pre-emergency that in the last 48 hours affected the Valencian Community due to the strong and persistent rains that we have had in some regions”, explained the regional secretary for Security and Emergencies, José María Angel.
However, it has warned that in the next few hours there could be rain both inside the Valencian Community and in the central regions.
“Emergencies will maintain coordination with all the agencies and organizations that it has maintained in the last few hours to respond to any situation that could be demanded by our town halls or by citizens,” he assured.
As reported by Emergencies, both the Alicante and Valencia Provincial Firefighters Consortium indicate that there have been no incidents related to the rains in the last three hours.
