Meteorological authorities have confirmed that Cyclone Yaku is heading southwest, which is why it is moving further and further away from the Peruvian coast. This would not symbolize the end of the rains since, as at the beginning of each year, the constant presence of this precipitation is common. That is why, in the past few hours, the ravines of various rivers have been activated both in the north and in the center of the country.

The increase in temperature in the Peruvian sea would ensure that rains continue to be recorded in the coming weeks. The authorities indicated that the rainfall could continue until tomorrow March 17 and warned that in the central and southern mountains the ravines could be activated, which is why they were asked to avoid any type of activity near riverbeds. Áncash, Apurímac, Arequipa, Ayacucho, Cusco, Huancavelica, Huánuco, Ica, Junín, Lima, Loreto, Madre de Dios, Pasco, San Martín and Ucayali, would register red levels.

Senamhi recommended “reviewing emergency procedures, rescheduling activities in impact-prone areas, protecting property and homes, and being attentive to information disseminated through official channels.” Moderate to extreme rainfall is expected in the areas mentioned. In the high jungle, moderate to heavy rains could occur.
