July 14, 2011

The Upala district in the northwest Alajuela province was placed on yellow alert Wednesday afternoon when heavy rains caused landslides and damage to homes in the region following a 5.3-magnitude earthquake Tuesday.

The National Emergency Commission (CNE) declared the alert, and the National Meteorological Institute (IMN) advised members of the communities in the region to be on alert for further landslides and continued rains.

Residents in the northwest Guanacaste province were warned to be cautious when close to Pacific waters. Reports also showed that the Río Guacalito was in danger of flooding as water levels rose. Landslides occurred on several area roadways, such as Route 164, which was made impassable for part of the day.
