The state of alert in Ecuador has been changed in response to the El Niño phenomenon. This decision was reached during a meeting held at the ECU-911 facilities in Quito and was presided over by Vice President Alfredo Borrero.

On September 18, 2023, the alert level in Ecuador was elevated from yellow to orange due to the imminent arrival of the El Niño phenomenon.

“Unanimously, the National COE learned of the report from the Oceanographic and Antarctic Institute of the Ecuadorian Navy for the issuance of an orange alert for the El Niño phenomenon. This is established under compliance with technical parameters,” said the Minister of the Interior, Juan Zapata. 

“The institutions will follow the action plan to articulate mitigation efforts against the El Niño phenomenon,” added the head of that State portfolio.
