This Wednesday morning, most of the Central Valley woke up under cloud and light rain.

A low-pressure system in the southwest Caribbean Sea is the cause heavy rain activity expected throughout the country today, Wednesday and continue to Friday, according to the national weather service, the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional (IMN).

Besides flooding, the danger is landslides.

The continued rains mean very saturated soils that could turn to landslides in high-risk areas.

In the Central Valley, high-risk areas include the Alto San Juan in Mora, Tapezco and Chitaría in Santa Ana, Burío in Aserrí, and Tablazo in Desamparados.
