Besides flooding, the danger is landslides.

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

“The Municipal Emergency Committees were activated to monitor active landslides and flood zones and the operational structure is being reinforced, in order to guarantee an effective response to the possible impact of vulnerable communities,” explained the CNE.

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.

The CNE asks people who live in areas prone to flooding or landslides to remain vigilant; Also, stay tuned to official reports, abide by the recommendations of the first response authorities to move to a temporary shelter if necessary.
