Update on situation in Huaraz; still inaccessible but 60 people got shipped out

The Huaraz Telegraph was informed that approximately 60 people boarded a Police-owned aircraft to be taken to the nation`s capital. Additionally we were informed that there are more than 200 people on a waiting list for additional flights. Police authorities confirmed that elderly and people with emergencies get preference. Also, international tourists that might miss their connection flight to another airport abroad get preference, but need to prove this by showing their plane tickets.

How is the situation in Huaraz?

Products in Huaraz are getting scarce and many restaurants have closed their doors due the fact that they are unable to purchase fresh products at the moment. In the morning and afternoon, none of the ATMs were working meaning for some people it is even impossible to do shopping. The local water company EPS Chavín has stated to the press that they can guarantee drinking water in Huaraz. On the other hand, interprovincial bus companies are not selling tickets and were unable to inform us when the roads would be cleared.
For tourists currently in Huaraz, is recommended to visit i-Perú (Tourist Information Centre) or the Tourist Police. Both are to be found on the Plaza de Armas and have constant contact with the local and national authorities on updates on road conditions.

Finally, The Huaraz Telegraph would like to apologize to our online followers as due to the very limited internet access in Huaraz, we have not been able to upload updates. People that have contacted us via email or our website will get an answer as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
