According to information from the PJF, more than 20 incidents related to traffic were recorded due to the rains. On Thursday morning, about 160 intersections were already at traffic lights. On Wednesday (21), at 49 intersections there were problems with power outages, equipment burnout or a fall. The actions of the traffic agents and the responsible teams ensured the agility in the maintenance and repair of these traffic lights.

The Municipal Department of Urban Cleaning (Demlurb) was also working in various parts of the city, cleaning, mainly, the trees that fell on the roads. 5.4 tons of garbage were removed during the night and dawn due to the rains. At Halfeld Park, teams were there on Wednesday night and Thursday morning to clean up. On Avenida Brasil there was also action by the teams, as well as on Avenida Rio Branco.

The Municipal Guard was also involved in 13 points of the city to assist in the conduction of traffic, mainly on roads where the traffic lights were off. In addition, teams were deployed to assist and guide traffic due to the fall of poles and/or trees.


The Fire Department and Cemig teams remain committed to removing fallen trees from public roads, repairing and restoring electricity in several districts of Juiz de Fora this Thursday morning (21). In Travessa Nelson Silva, in Costa Carvalho, residents complain that they still have no light since Wednesday afternoon (21), while on Rua Pedro Gonçalves de Oliveira, in the Bom Pastor neighborhood, a tree has fallen over the wiring, which prevents removal the same by the firefighters. The tree also blocked the entrance of a house from the road.

Cemig says that company teams are already on site to prune a large tree that fell on the medium voltage (MV) network at Travessa Nelson Silva, in addition to repairing the cables that broke in the event. The forecast is that the service will be completed and the energy normalized by 12:00. In addition, another team has already moved to attend to the occurrence at Rua Pedro Gonçalves.

Also, according to a note, the main cause of the disconnections were objects thrown towards the electrical network, such as parts of roofs and tree branches, which caused short circuits and cable breaks. These services, which represent greater risk to the population, were prioritized.

“Immediately after the incidents started, company teams started repairs and work continued throughout the night and it was possible to restore more than 90% of the affected customers”.

The forecast is that the restoration of supply to the rest of the affected customers will be done by the end of this afternoon (22/09).
