Wind gusts of up to 90 km/h has many concerned, some even frightened and holding on. The weatherman forecasts even stronger winds and cold air for the coming days.

One of the most serious situations was in downtown Santa Ana Wednesday afternoon, when a 70 year old tree, some 25 metres high, gave way to the strong winds, falling onto two small trucks.

One of those was a Coca Cola truck with a crew of three on their delivery run at a nearby restaurant. Luckily the three were not near the truck. But, the driver of the second truck was so lucky. Scared from the accident, he was able to tell his story, suffering only an injury to his hand.

According to the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional (IMN) the country is being affected by a phenomenon. The high winds are associated with the change of the season, as Costa Rica moves quickly towards the “rainy season”. However, the strong gusts are not common with the change.

With the strong winds also comes cold temperatures. In the early hours this morning, the skies over San José were grey and appeared like a severe storm was coming.

What worries IMN authorities is that the weather conditions will get worse into the weekend, the start of the Semana Santa holidays, when many head to the mountain resorts, areas prone to falling trees.
