In the face of intense rainfall this morning, the Funchal City Hall was called to intervene on a private plot in the Praia Formosa area where water left its natural course causing material damages in the street adjacent to the existing stream.
For this purpose, workers from the Department of Infrastructures and Equipment were mobilised, who proceeded to clear the natural dam of material consisting of reeds, earth and other residues, restoring the course of the water to its natural bed. Workers from the Department of the Environment and the Sea Front Funchal proceeded to clean the affected areas to Praia Formosa.
The damages of the pavements of the streets will be repaired next Monday by the Division of Municipal Works and Conservation.
“The CMF thanks the collaboration of all who helped in the rapid solution of this problem, appealing to the understanding for the possible inconveniences caused”
