      Mega-yacht nearly ends in flames


    Megayate casi termina en llamas

    0 07 de noviembre de 2013 
       A mega yacht named "Azul", flying a Mexican flag, was in dry dock at Villa Vera Marina receiving fiberglass repairs and maintenance when a fire broke out in a container of trash that contained some of the fiberglass catalyst. This sparked a fire alert on board the yacht and the warning spread rapidly. Emergency crews from Civil Protection and Aguakan arrived shortly after 7pm,  and were denied access temporarily, which was an oversight. 
         When workers realized the problem they boarded the boat, threw the container overboard, and extinguished the fire. It is not known whether there was damage to the yacht, and authorities did not issue a statement.

Heavy rains that fell just before the start of the school day caused truancy in some schools, but to a lesser degree at the downtown school "Andres Quintana Roo" where only 20 students were absent. Most of the students of that school live within a few blocks of the campus.

Various streets flooded

Heavy rains surprised islanders and affected different parts of the municipality in the morning when flooding occurred downtown and in some of the colonias, including Miraflores, Salinas, and La Gloria. Some businesses and homes were affected downtown when the water level rose over 60 centimeters, and there was overflowing near the municipal market. There was flooding at the intersection of Abasolo and Hidalgo (Barlito's corner). The Director of Civil Protection said the pumps were turned on in the morning. On Wednesday, personnel with Civil Protection were de-silting the storm drain near the Monument to the Fishermen (at the north end of main street, by the roundabout).

The workers building the new ferry terminal broke a storm drain to the sea, which caused a flood within minutes,  in front of the terminal, affecting businesses, homes, residents, and Ultramar passengers. The problem was resolved after almost two hours.

Cavities affect more than just teeth
La caries no sólo es una afectación en los dientes[+] Ver mas
Activities began on Monday for the Second National Week of Oral Health, which include campaigns in the primary schools. The Hospital Director taught the students at "Andres Quintana Roo" school about brushing & flossing techniques, the importance of oral care, and the application of fluoride. He asked the children to share the information with family and friends. He said dental cavities affect a large percentage of the population, and can cause other health problems.
