The CNE reports that in Guácimo, Pococí and Sarapiquí, the hardest hit, some 16 communities are isolated due to damage to roads and bridges.

The emergency has forced the CNE into action to prevent further flooding, set up shelters and distribute food, water and basic needs. In some areas, pollution of wells is a major concern.
