Tidal surge destroys 8 houses in Crucita, Ecuador


Houses that were used as small fishermen commercial location (fish cleaning) were destroyed by the high tide force that hit this morning the beach location of Los Arenales, at Crucita Parish, Province of Manibi, Ecuador.

José López, leader of the fishermen at this parish in the Province of Manabi, Ecuador, said six other cottages gave way to the force of the sea early Wednesday.

Melisendra Delgado, owner of one of the cabins, said that in the past three years the situation has been similar, and now she doesn’t know how to find the monetary resources to start over with the business which offered employment to about 20 other people.

According to Hilton Guanoluisa, a local fisherman, to build a cabin will cost around $ 3,000 to $ 5,000 USD straight from their pocket.

Up to today, the owners of the destroyed cottages did not get any assistance or help from authorities, as Delgado said. The National Secretary for Risk Management in Manabi had not pronounce any statement on this matter.
