The damage left by the winter on the road leading from Bogota to the municipality of La Calera is still visible. Repairs and debris collection are being carried out from kilometer 4 to the Tilatá School after passing the toll booth. Although this Tuesday, November 15, 2022, the sun and the weather gave truce, the total opening of the road is still uncertain.
"We don't know when it can be opened, just as the area could be cleaned, tomorrow it rains and everything will be in ruins", exclaimed Ramiro Cárdenas, who works removing debris.
The residences near kilometer 6 remain without electricity, the power service was cut off to cut down the trees that could fall on the road.
"Since we don't have electricity, the water service depends on a pump and that pump is connected to the electricity. We have neither water nor electricity, obviously telephone service, nor internet service," commented Lorena Bolívar, a resident of the sector.
There is also no public transportation; residents must walk a long way to the point known as La Capilla to take a SITP bus.
Meanwhile, firefighters and IDIGER (Institute for Risk Management and Climate Change) personnel are tirelessly searching for Javier Velilla.
"The last action we initiated in this sector one was already entering with heavy machinery to remove this compaction of mud and debris that has been generated, the search for the person who was reported missing," said Diego Moreno, director of Bomberos Bogotá.
Although today more than 210 people worked in the search for the citizen on the creek Las Lajas, there are still no results.
