Eviction of sectors of San Rafael, Judibana and Creolandia in Falcón state
Jesús Longo, Maintenance Manager, state-run oil holding Petróleos de Venezuela (Pdvsa), reported through Pdvsa radio network that there is no reason to be alarmed
Efforts to contact the local chapter of Land Traffic and Civil Protection in order to query into the reasons for the action proved to be unsuccessful.
Such a situation was very confusing and the cause of despair among Falcón residents, afraid of a new, similar event.
Many people would try to leave Amuay for Coro, the capital city of Falcón state, in the absence of government information.
A reassuring Jesús Longo, Maintenance Manager, state-run oil holding Petróleos de Venezuela (Pdvsa), reported through Pdvsa radio network that there is no reason to be alarmed. He claimed that all security protocols had been accomplished and that the action in the area is part of the process.

Luis Jiménez Alfaro seems to have hidden under the rocks. The last time he was seen was on April 2006 walking calmly around Simón Bolívar International Airport of Maiquetía, located nearby Caracas. At that time, more than five tons of cocaine arrived in Mexico in an airplane which took off from Venezuela, and his name featured as a missing piece of the puzzle of one of the most massive drug shipments that has been witnessed in the Western Hemisphere.
