An orange alert has been declared in the South Pacific because it is in this sector where the most risk situations have been reported.

The national weather service, the IMN, predicts that heavy rains will continue in almost the entire Costa Rican territory.

The director of the IMN, Werner Stolz, said that the current rainy conditions are expected to continue into next weekend the province of Guanacaste.

Authorities have asked people, especially those who live near rivers, to be careful to avoid exposing themselves to the danger of crossing them.
