According to Commander José Rodrigues, from the National Emergency and Civil Protection Authority (ANEPC), 9,628 operators were involved, supported by 3,080 vehicles.

"At the moment things are calmer, despite the fact that there are many operators still working given the number of occurrences, namely flooding in garages, basements and other places that require many hours of work", José Rodrigues told Lusa.
