En estos momentos, el presidente municipal de Puerto Vallarta, Arturo Dávalos Peña, coordina un operativo para evacuar la zona de Las Juntas, Ranchito, La desembocada, Getzemaní, Niños Héroes y La esperanza.















Esto como medida preventiva, puesto que desde las 3:30 am se reportó que el municipio de Mascota está inundado por el desbordamiento del río con el mismo nombre.
