SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Nov. 13 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The president of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, has reiterated the importance of complying with the security measures established by the management of Pevolca and has appealed to individual responsibility to avoid accidents, when citizens are allowed access to exclusion zones for performing different tasks.
Ángel Víctor Torres, who chaired the meeting of the Pevolca Steering Committee on Saturday, has made this request after confirming the death of a 72-year-old man in the exclusion zone, in the neighborhood of El Corazoncillo, in the municipality of El Paso, who came to the area with a crew to clean up the ashes.
Torres has also emphasized that, although many of the observable elements reflect decreased energy and lava input, it is not yet possible to predict a completion of the volcanic eruption.
For its part, the Pevolca Steering Committee has also insisted on the obligation to comply with the rules established for cleaning homes: citizens should only access the exclusion zones within the protocol established under the exhaustive control of the municipalities and the security operation of the Plan; clean exclusively the ashes of those roofs that are passable; always use adequate self-protection measures, and do not act alone.
