The communities of Escoica, La Lucha, Santa Rosa and Camarones, in the province of Limón, were the most affected by the rains that started late Wednesday night.

The Parismina and Platanar rivers overflowed their banks, causing floods in various communities, with water levels up to two metres (six feet) high.

The rains subsided Thursday afternoon, causing the water levels to quickly recede and no need to open shelters as people weren’t forced to abandon their homes.

The rain and cold front that gripped most of the country in the last 36 hours is being called an “impuje” (push), as cold air from the north collides with the warm air of the Gulf of Mexico, affecting out country with strong cold winds and light to heavy rains.
