The Government is studying declaring an emergency on the Catalan coasts affected by the storm

The Government delegate in Catalonia, Carlos Prieto, held a meeting this Tuesday with the government subdelegates in Barcelona, ​​Tarragona and Girona and the heads of coastal demarcation of these provinces to evaluate the situation caused by the storm that has affected the coastline. Catalan and, after that, has contacted the General Directorate of the Coast and the Sea of ​​the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge to report the situation and for the Ministry to evaluate an emergency declaration based on a resolution of the Secretary of State of the Ministry to expedite repair works on the affected coastline.

At the meeting, Prieto highlighted the coordination of the delegation and subdelegations to contact all affected municipalities to find out the effects of the storm. In fact, they have confirmed that many of them are still assessing the damage, so the reports prepared by the delegation are preliminary and they will work to specify the needs of each municipality.

One of the idiosyncrasies of this storm is the southern component, which means that much of the sand that has moved has not left the beach system and, if there is no other storm with a southern component, much of the sand should return to the beach in the coming weeks, hence the effects are still preliminary.

Despite this, the delegate has contacted the General Directorate of the Coast and the Sea aware of the concerns of the municipalities, first because some of these effects are risky and second because of the proximity of the summer campaign.

The Delegate will send the preliminary and final reports this Tuesday, as they are finalized, and has welcomed the willingness of the General Directorate of the Coast and the Sea to accelerate the restoration works on the beach of everything affected by emergency means. due to the storm, so he has concluded that “the summer season will not be affected.”
