Baja & Border News Translations: Remember to Stock-up on Drinking Water; Expect Temperature Drop
Remember to Stock-up on Drinking Water (El Mexicano, 11/6/12, by Lucía Gomez Sanchez)
TIJUANA, BC - Citizens must not forget to stock up on water before general water service ends starting at 6 am Wednesday.
The stoppage will be widespread affecting 95 percent of Tijuana and Rosarito beaches and last until at least 6 pm that day.
In the higher parts of the city it will probably last until eight in the evening on Thursday, so it will be necessary for those who live in those areas to store water in larger quantities.
The State Commission of public services of Tijuana (CESPT) reported the disruption of the drinking water service is due to Carrizo dam floodgate maintenance. http://www.el-mexicano.com.mx/informacion/noticias/1/3/estatal/2012/11/06/627230/recuerde-abastecerse-ante-corte-de-agua-potable.aspx
Expect Temperature Drop (El Mexicano, 11/5/12)
XALAPA, Veracruz - The arrival of a possible cold front, will cause a drop in temperatures below freezing with the probability of falling sleet in the mountainous areas in Veracruz. The Secretariat of Civil Protection, Noemi Guzman Lagunes, reported the likelihood of snowfall settling over places 4,500 meters above the sea level.
In this regard, she explained that forecasts indicate that there will be persistent cool to cold weather with light frost at dawn in mountain region elevations and possible snow in Cofre de Perote and Pico de Orizaba.
The State official said that you could expect a drop in temperature in most of the State due to the entry of a new cold front, which entered the northern part of the Gulf of Mexico. She stressed that this phenomenon would cross Northern Tamaulipas on Tuesday morning, to the north of Veracruz at midnight, and over the Center-South of the State, on Wednesday night.
Its passage would continue to favor unstable conditions estimated at from 5 to 20 mm and timely rainfall exceeding 50 mm. Meanwhile, a cold air mass associated with the front will cause an event to the North with wind speeds of 30 to 40 kilometers per hour and strong gusts from 55 to 60 kph on the coast, mainly from Tuesday through Wednesday.
It is recommended that the population stay informed and take relevant precautions for locally strong rains, lightning activity, wind gusts, high waves, urban flooding and a reduction of visibility beginning on Tuesday. http://www.el-mexicano.com.mx/informacion/noticias/1/2/nacional/2012/11/05/626941/caida-de-agua-nieve-provoca-alerta-en-veracruz.aspx
