(QCOSTARICA) The National Emergency Commission (Comisión Nacional de Emergencias – CNE) issued a “green alert” for the province of Limon and the South Pacific for possible high waves and heavy rains, as a result of a indirect impact of Hurricane Matthew.

According to a press released by the CNE, the alert is preventative. The University of Costa Rica (UCR) forecast waves up to 3 metres high for today (Saturday) and 2.7 metres on Sunday.

Hurricane Matthew strengthened to a rare Category 5 late Friday evening, before weakening to a strong Category 4 hurricane overnight. Matthew is the first Category 5 hurricane since Hurricane Felix in 2007.

The storm poses a danger to Jamaica, parts of Hispañola, eastern Cuba and the Bahamas early next week. Its potential U.S. impact later next week still remains unclear. Impacts are possible in Florida during the middle of next week.

In Costa Rica, the hurricane could affect the Caribbean coast ans areas in the South Pacific, including Corredores, Osa, Coto Brus, Golfito, Buenos Aires and Perez Zeledon.
