CITY

Venezuelan Vargas state still bears the scars of a tragedy

In the last 15 years, 63 upstream-basin dams, 12 river groynes, canals, bridges, roads, and tourism structures have been built in Vargas state (north central Venezuela). Yet the natural disaster that made 54,392 people homeless and lashed other 240,000, still lives on sites across the state, such as Carmen de Uria, and the historical heart of La Guaira. The latter is a very vulnerable city where after fifteen years it is common to find dwellings without public service utilities, unpaved roads, and sectors lying buried under the debris. Moreover, works on risk mitigation remain unfinished in 17 out of 23 intervened basins; works on environmental sanitation are nonexistent, and 10 water pumping stations must still be built
