The United States government, through the U.S. Embassy in San Jose, is in solidarity with the Costa Ricans affected by the passage of tropical storm Nate and is donating US$150,000 to support with the expenses of helicopter flights for the distribution of humanitarian supplies and inspection of the affected areas and communities.

The Embassy note said, “In this way, the US government responds to the request for assistance presented by the National Commission for Risk Prevention and Emergency Care of Costa Rica (CNE).”

The US collaboration is done through the Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), a branch of the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

OFDA, like other US government agencies such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Geological Survey, Southern Command and NASA are working steadily with the CNE and other regional institutions in the prevention and mitigation of the disaster situations that may affect the country.

For the laster in road conditions and location of shelters, as the situation can change constantly, please consult the following web sites:

El gobierno de Estados Unidos se solidariza con los costarricenses afectados por el paso de la tormenta Nate y entrega $150 mil (ciento cincuenta mil dólares) para apoyar con los gastos de vuelos de helicópteros para la distribución de suministros humanitarios e inspección de las zonas afectadas y comunidades aisladas.

De esta manera el gobierno estadounidense responde a la solicitud de ayuda presentada por la Comisión Nacional de Prevención de Riesgos y Atención de Emergencias de Costa Rica (CNE).

La colaboración estadounidense se hace por medio de la Oficina de Asistencia para Desastres en el Exterior (OFDA, por sus siglas en inglés), dependencia que forma parte de la Agencia Estadounidense para Desarrollo Internacional (USAID).

OFDA, al igual que otras agencias del gobierno de Estados Unidos como el Servicio Geológico Administración Nacional Oceánica y Atmosférica (NOAA, por sus siglas en inglés), el Comando Sur y NASA trabajan de manera constante con la CNE y otras instituciones regionales en la prevención y mitigación de las situaciones de desastre que pueden afectar al país.
