The brewery that produces Medalla in Mayagüez is flooded


The rains left by storm Isaías as it passed through Puerto Rico, and which mainly affected the western part of the country, had an effect on the Cervecera de Puerto Rico production plant, located in the urban area of ​​Mayagüez.

In a video that circulated on social networks, it was possible to see how the facilities of the manufacturer of the Medalla beer were flooded by water runoff caused by the rains.

The operations manager of Cervecera de Puerto Rico, Maribel Montes, reported that no significant damage was reported to the company as a result of the passage of Storm Isaías through the western region.

“Heavy rains such as those caused by this system present a challenge due to the proximity of the plant to the Yagüez River. However, it is something that we contemplate within our emergency management plans. Fortunately, despite the accumulation of water in some areas of the plant, there is no damage to the vital infrastructure that affects the operation, or the production process, ”said Montes.

At the moment Mayagüez is one of the towns most affected by the Isaías storm, which caused heavy flooding in some 56 sectors of this municipality causing countless landslides.
