The National Weather Bureau has predicted a heavy storm front will move against the state of Vargas within the next week, causing severe flooding and perhaps reaching crisis levels. The Governor of the State has called for the displacement of all people in high risk zones in preparation for the possible flooding. This would include hundreds of thousands of people still living in dangerous areas after last years deadly flooding.
World Vision Venezuela is monitoring the situation closely, as well as assisting the IDPs with kitchen equipment, milk, and hygiene items.
