EN ESPAÑOL Los refugios para evacuados en Texas no preguntarán por el

first_imgAPVarios residentes esperan en un colegio antes de ser evacuados en prevención ante la llegada de Harvey, el 25 de agosto de 2017, en Corpus Christi.  Residents wait at a high school gym before they are evacuated as the outer bands of Hurricane Harvey begin to make landfall, Friday, Aug. 25, 2017, in Corpus Christi, Texas. Harvey intensified into a hurricane Thursday and steered for the Texas coast with the potential for up to 3 feet of rain, 125 mph winds and 12-foot storm surges in what could be the fiercest hurricane to hit the United States in almost a dozen years.(AP Photo/Eric Gay)Las autoridades de Texas han asegurado que los refugios abiertos en todo el estado para acoger a evacuados del huracán Harvey no preguntarán por el estatus inmigratorio de las familias que lleguen a ellos.El gobernador de Texas Greg Abbott, republicano, dijo el viernes que el principal foco de Texas en este momento está en la seguridad y “la protección de la vida”.Harvey, un huracán de categoría 3 que según los pronósticos de los expertos tocará tierra el viernes en la noche, llega al estado justo una semana antes de que la llamada ley de ciudades santuario, o SB4, entre en efecto. La ley fue firmada por Abbott tras ser aprobada en la pasada Legislatura y autoriza a los efectivos de las fuerzas de seguridad a preguntar el estatus inmigratorio de los detenidos en una parada de tráfico e informar sobre este estatus a las autoridades de inmigración. También amenaza con llevar a la cárcel a jefes de policías locales y sheriffs de condados que no cooperen con las autoridades federales.Las mayores ciudades de Texas, incluidas Houston y Dallas, han pedido a un juez federal que pare la implementación de la ley, que entra en vigor el 1 de septiembre.Abbott también dijo que no se siente preocupado por la posibilidad de que los puntos de control de la Patrulla Fronteriza obstaculicen las tareas de evacuación cerca de la frontera entre Texas y México.

(NOAA-NASA via AP)“I urge all Marylanders to prepare now for the potential effects of Hurricane Irma,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “While we have the benefit of time, review your family emergency plans and ensure you have supplies on hand. As always, Maryland stands ready to support our friends and neighbors in states that will be dealing with the impacts from this major hurricane first.”In addition to continuous communication with the National Weather Service, MEMA is coordinating with local emergency management offices and state partners to ensure that they have the information and resources they need to respond.“Hurricane tracks can shift quickly,” said Russ Strickland, Executive Director of MEMA. “Everyone in our area should regularly check forecasts, build an emergency kit, and always listen to the directions of local officials.”Before a storm, residents and visitors in Maryland can:Prepare an emergency kit and create a family communications plan. Good supplies to have on hand include bottled water and non-perishable food, a battery-operated radio, flashlight, extra batteries, toiletries, and copies of important documents.Check to see if you are in a flood-prone area on our website: mema.maryland.gov.Communicate with friends, family members, and neighbors and make sure that they are up to date with the latest information and weather forecast.last_img read more
