EVALUACIÓN RÁPIDA DE LOS EFECTOS DEL HURACÁN BETA EN LA ISLA PROVIDENCIA (CARIBE COLOMBIANO)

Alberto Rodríguez Ramírez, María Catalina Reyes Nivia

Resumen


Hurricane Beta passed very close to Providencia and Santa Catalina islands in October 29, 2005 as a moderate category 1 hurricane. Fast surveys carried out fifteen days after the event at 20 sites located on coral reefs, seagrass beds, beaches, and mangroves indicated a low impact over these four ecosystems. In contrast, terrestrial vegetation and island’s infrastructure were severely damaged.
