El Salvador Travel Warning
Issued by U.S. State Department
Feb 14, 2001
While cleanup and repair efforts in El Salvador continue in the aftermath of the earthquake of January 13, some roads, especially in rural areas throughout the country, may remain blocked or damaged as a result of the earthquake, subsequent and continuing aftershocks, and related landslides. A second earthquake on February 13 has caused extensive, but localized, damage and loss of life. Commercial flights within and out of El Salvador have resumed. American citizens should check on local conditions before coming to a decision on whether to travel to El Salvador.
The Department of State has lifted the authorized departure status of family members of U.S. Government personnel and of U.S. Government personnel in non-emergency positions.
This replaces the Travel Warning issued January 16, 2001, to reflect developments since the initial earthquake of January 14, and to note the lifting of authorized departure status. This Public Announcement expires on May 9, 2001.
