Correction: Hard winds slam San José, but no tornado
The gusts that swept through San José early yesterday afternoon were “strong winds” and not a tornado as initially reported, according to Costa Rica ´s National Meteorological Institute.
Meteorologist José Joaquín Agüero said the wind zipped through faster than 100 kilometers per hour, although the institute has no official measurement. Conditions may have been ripe for one but “it was not a tornado,” he said.
Speaking today during a heavy downpour in the Central Valley, Agüero said residents tomorrow afternoon should expect more hard rain to fall.
