Algunos de los aproximadamente 1,000 personas varadas en el Parque Nacional del Valle de la Muerte se han ido a pesar de las inundaciones

El Parque Nacional Death Valley anunció su cierre el viernes debido a inundaciones sustanciales dentro del parque., de acuerdo a un comunicado de prensa.

All roads into and out of the park are currently closed and will remain closed until park staff can assess the extensiveness of the situation,” the National Park Service said Friday.
Actualmente, there are approximately 500 visitors and 500 staff at the park, según la agencia, and stranded visitors can leave if they wish. No injuries have been reported.
      Abby Wines, public affairs officer for the National Park Service, told CNN Friday that a number of visitors to Death Valley National Park have voluntarily left the park.
        Despite road closures, Wines saysno one is stoppingvisitors if they find a way out of the park.
          At The Inn at Death Valley, aproximadamente 60 cars belonging to visitors and staff are buried under debris, según un comunicado de prensa.

          The park received 1.46 inches of rain at Furnace Creek, which nearly matches the previous daily record of 1.47 pulgadas,” the release reads.
            Wines says it is unclear when roads will reopen.
            mientras tanto, the California Department of Transportation says it will take around four to six hours to open a road on Highway 190 — east of the parkthat would allow visitors and staff to exit, the release says.
