Geologists from the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (MARN) and members of the civil defense arrived this morning in the village of San Antonio in the municipality Comasagua, Libertad department, in order to check the situation with the formation of the ravine. Ravine appeared in last Tuesday because of land erosion, after nine days of continuous rain. The depth of the ravine about 100 meters and 500 meters long.
People who live close to the place where the earth opened, were immediately evacuated due to the danger of erosion of land.
The formation of this ravine was presumably due to the saturation of the soil moisture. Until yesterday, at least 196 people were evacuated.
