The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional (IMN) is forecasting the tropical wave should be leaving by today, Friday, however, its effects could continue into the weekend.

The IMN recommends:

  • Caution in areas with vulnerability to flooding due to saturation of the sewage system, due to the increase in the flow in rivers and streams. In addition to places with high propensity to landslides as national routes.
  • Take shelter in a safe place in case of thunderstorms or strong gusts of wind or storm clouds, as well as precaution for possible fall of tree branches, power lines among others.
  • Stay informed by visiting the IMN Facebook page, Twitter or website at for the latest weather conditions.

PS, don’t forget your umbrella and galoshes when going outside!
