300 remain evacuated in Neuquén following storms

The Emergency Committee in Neuquén has confirmed that the situation in the province has begun to normalise following storms that led over 1000 residents being evacuated from their homes, although just under 300 individuals are still unable to return home.

The Committee informed today that in the province capital Neuquén 186 evacuees remained. A further 87 from the town of Plottier and 26 in Senillosa were waiting to be allowed to return to their homes, after strong rains hit on Tuesday.

The Provincial Institute of Housing and Urbanism (IPVU), meanwhile, affirmed that the provincial government would release funds for the reconstruction of infrastructure damaged during the storms.

More than 1400 people were forced out of their homes as water reached a height of one metre in some areas, with the capital most affected.

A lady of 70 years died during the storm, after an ambulance was unable to attend her emergency call due to inclement conditions.
