Authorities noted that around 260 buildings are at risk, and only 50 percent of families have been evicted.

The uniformed members of the GN, along with personnel from the Army, civil protection and state and municipal officials, go from house to house to ask their inhabitants to move to temporary shelters to avoid risks.

In the place two shelters are maintained, one in the Heart of Jesus Parish, with 56 people from 5 families, of which 13 are older adults, 29 adults, and 14 minors; and another in the Kamakiri Room, where 20 people from 3 families stayed overnight, of which 12 are adults and 8 are minors.
