“This is in the lower part of Corredores, Ciudad Neily,” said Juan Carlos Calderón, director of Emergencies of the Ministry of Public Works and Transport (MOPT), who explained that at least 15 national routes register some type of affectation due to the effects of the rains.

Some of the affected routes are located in the South Zone, Guanacaste and the Central Valley.

The National Emergency Commission (CNE) and the rescue authorities are evacuating the residents of La Fuente and La Colina, because the Caño Seco River washed away the dam in the area, taking trees, structures and others along with it.

It is estimated that for this Wednesday the rains will continue in the country, as an indirect influence of the tropical storm ETA, downgraded from a Category 4 hurricane that hit the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua early Tuesday morning.
