LLUVIA GOLPEA LIMÓN Y PANAMÁ
Las intensas lluvias mantienen en alerta a los habitantes del Caribe, donde el nivel del agua va en aumento, incluso en Panamá se reportan 5 muertos y el gobierno de ese país declaró estado de emergencia. (Foto: EFE y Carlos Rodríguez).."
loosely translated: " the intense rains keep the inhabitants of the caribe on alert, where the level of water is increasing, including in panama where 5 deaths were reported and the country declared a state of emergency..."
but really, el jazeera would be your best bet for news of costa rica.
sometimes things happen very quickly and it's not always the rains in a specific area that cause the problem, but rain at higher elevations which causes the flooding of rivers "downstream."
the best bet, as always, is to talk to local people. they know more about what's going on, obviously, than me or el diario extra or el jazeera combined!
