Costa Rica Storms to Continue through Tuesday; Central Valley, Central Pacific and Southern Zone Remain on Red Alert;

November 6, 2010

Costa Rica’s National Emergency Commission (CNE) declared a green alert for the Caribbean coast and the country’s northern zone Friday in anticipation of a cold front that is approaching the country from the Gulf of Mexico.

The National Meteorological Institute (IMN) expects the system to bring winds between of 60 to 80 kilometers per hour in most parts of the country and cause cloudy conditions and possibly rain in the Caribbean and the northern zone.  

Vanessa Rosales, president of the CNE, said that the weather could cause “problems” in the Caribbean and in other parts of the country.

Meteorologists said that the effects of the system could last until next Tuesday.

The green alert is the first of the country’s three alert levels. The Caribbean previously was not on alert.

The Central Valley, the Central Pacific and the southern zone remain on red alert – the highest of the country’s three alert levels –  and meteorologists said that rains will continue in these zones at least through Saturday.

Costa Rica’s National Meteorological reported that some regions in the country, such as the Central Pacific, received more than three times November’s average rainfall this week.
