On the morning of this Tuesday, January 4, a phenomenon known as low tide or marine emptying was registered, which consists of the distance from the sea by several meters, which was recorded due to the effects of cold front number 19.

This phenomenon surprised the inhabitants of the port, as well as tourists who visited the beaches of the Traditional Malecón of Progreso, which woke up with several meters of sand exposed.

The sea receded several meters. This phenomenon revealed a layer of sargassum. The ports are closed to navigation.
