  1. SITUATION

Considering the current meteorological situation, the National Civil Protection Authority, through its District Commands and in close coordination with the Portuguese Agency for Environment and Civil Protection System agents, have reinforced the operational follow-up of the river basins that historically may experience flooding.

Special attention is being given to the basins of the Tagus, Vouga (Águeda) and Douro (Tâmega), as well as like all of the remaining tributaries north of the Tagus.

Thus, as a preventive measure and of operational anticipation, the authorities have activated the Special Emergency Plan for Floods in the Tagus Basin (Santarém) and the Plan Emergency Special for Floods in the Municipality of Coimbra.

  1. PREVENTIVE MEASURES

Measures to be observed and taken by citizens in potentially affected areas, namely:

 Remove from the confinement areas which are normally flooded, agricultural equipment, industrial, vehicles and other goods;

 Place animals in safe locations, removing the herds in the areas likely to be flooded;

 Do not cross roads or wetlands with cars or on foot;

 Keep informed, through the Media or Information Civil Protection, fulfilling the actions necessary for its protection, of yourself, family and property.

The ANPC is actively monitoring the present situation.
