According to the National Meteorological Institute (Meteorológico Nacional – IMN), the rafagas (wind gusts) hitting most of Central America and the Caribbean, are expected to start declining on Thursday.

In the Central Valley, in Pozos de Santa Ana, for example,  the strong winds downed power lines. In other areas there have been reports of fallen trees and tree branches.

One of those cases as in Quitirrisi, canton de Mora, a fallen tree last night kept the Puriscal-San Jose road closed for more than an hour.
