The rains that began in the early hours of this Tuesday, the 13th, and the high tide, caused disruption in several parts of Amapá.
In Macapá, manager Antônio Furlan, in an exclusive interview with Sistema Diário de Comunicação, informed that the City Hall declared a state of emergency. According to him, the decision was taken so that federal forces could also act to solve the problems caused by the rains. “Once a state of emergency is declared, the federal government can act directly,” said Furlan.

“Difficult moment in Macapá”, lamented the mayor, who informed that the Civil Defense declared an ‘orange’ alert in the municipality. “With the rain since dawn and the high tide, several neighborhoods were affected and houses were rented; all City Hall teams are working”, informed Furlan.

The mayor stated that the emergency situation had been declared and asked that the forces act directly, quickly and effectively in the situation.

Furlan also spoke of the alignment between him; the governor of Amapá, Clécio Luís; and minister Waldez Góes. He highlighted the presence of the Amapá Military Fire Department and the Municipal Civil Guard.

Regarding the cancellation of the ‘A Banda’ block, the mayor declared: “Wise decision; the city does not have the climate or environment to enjoy carnival at the moment.”
