The rains that affected authorities and families in several parts of the country last week, could happen again throughout the week.
The latest report from the National Meteorological Institute (IMN) indicates that rainy conditions will take place in the afternoon in the Pacific coast, whereas in the morning, weak rainy conditions and trade winds are expected.
High temperatures in the morning will contribute with the development of showers in the afternoon. In the Pacific and in the Central Valley downpours could extend into the early hours of the night. Little rainfalls are expected in the Caribbean.
Last week, hurricane Matthew was felt in our country. Heavy downpours caused floods in several places, especially in the Central Valley. In addition, in just two days, San José was highly affected by the rainfalls that were supposed to happen throughout the entire month. 153 people from some 34 families were evacuated from their homes last Thursday, due to incidents related to downpors.
The National Emergency Commission (CNE) reminds people the necessary recommendations to avoid a greater impact if heavy rains do not stop:
-Be careful if you are located in areas vulnerable to landslides.
-If there are thunderstorms, avoid being in open fields. Find shelter in dry and closed areas.
-Be careful of strong gusts, as they can make branches and trees fall.
-Keep an eye on the road, due to reduced visibility.
