Playa del Carmen Protects Pets During Hurricane “Beryl”

Playa del Carmen recently prepared for the arrival of Hurricane "Beryl". Not only were offices, businesses, and homes safeguarded, but the welfare of animals was also a priority. A pet shelter was established at the Solidaridad Animal Welfare Center (Cebiam) in Playa del Carmen, ensuring that all animals were in perfect condition.

"All animals housed at the pet refuge, as well as the dogs at the Cebiam facilities, are safe and sound. We are grateful to the citizens for their efforts in protecting their pets," said Mayor Lili Campos Miranda. She highlighted that residents of Playa del Carmen not only took care of their homes and businesses but also their pets during Hurricane "Beryl", which impacted the Quintana Roo territory.

Following the hurricane, several departments including Firefighters, Civil Protection, Public Services, and others have been working tirelessly to support residents in need. The Solidaridad City Council received various reports of fallen trees, damaged traffic lights, power outages, flooded streets, and more. These issues have been addressed throughout the day.

As Hurricane "Beryl" moved away from the state's shores, life in Playa del Carmen is gradually returning to normal, according to Mayor Lili Campos. Public transport is now operating as usual, and many businesses have reopened. However, residents are advised to remain cautious due to the forecasted rains this weekend.
