Although the Ecuadorian president had arrived in the disaster zone to promise emergency management measures, an affected citizen in this coastal territory yelled at the reporters asking what is the aid? where is the president? And let the face be seen.

Lasso, on a tour of the areas most impacted by the atmospheric disaster, announced that several trucks were heading to Esmeraldas loaded with basic necessities such as supplies, beds, mattresses, awnings, food, water, among other products.

However, images showed complete chaos in that town where some 2,895 homes suffered the consequences of the rainfall and most of the affected families are still waiting for those state contributions.

According to the Risk Management Secretariat (SGR), 500 members of the Armed Forces, 110 uniformed members of the National Police, the Fire Department and its operational team have been transferred to Esmeraldas.

The last report of the SGR revealed the rescue of 1,467 people, after their houses were practically under water that exceeded three meters in height. This Monday, the residents of that sector continued cleaning their homes and trying to recover some belongings.
