Una muy grave situación se presenta en el municipio de Puerto Valdivia en Antioquia, por lo que sería la completa inundación del pueblo, por la creciente del río Cauca.

Ante la magnitud de la emergencia, ayer en la mañana, la empresa EPM anunció que inundaría el cuarto de máquinas de la hidroeléctrica para permitir el paso del agua y así recuperar lentamente el cauce normal del río Cauca. "En los próximos minutos se aumentará el caudal de agua del río Cauca aguas abajo de la presa, debido al destaponamiento de uno de los túneles", fue el mensaje de las autoridades.

Tal como informó a EL COLOMBIANO Silvana Martínez Betín, encargada de Planeación del municipio de Cáceres, "con la Defensa Civil hemos mandado a hacer perifoneo por todas las orillas del río para que las personas no estén cerca haciendo actividades de pesca ni barequeo".

La alerta fue enviada por la Unidad Nacional de Gestión de Riesgo de Desastres en coordinación con el Dapard y la Cruz Roja.

Sin embargo, varias han sido las voces de alerta que han generado pánico en las redes sociales, asegurando que uno de los puentes se derrumbó.

Algunos videos se están volviendo virales en redes sociales, donde se evidencia el nivel de caudal que alcanzó el río Cauca.
