Windy Weather and Closure of Parque Nacional Volcán Barú - Late December 2018

Recommended Posts

Well, the winds have started somewhat early this year and started off with a bang. My property is shielded by topography from the very worst of the winds, but I awoke to two heavy flower pots blown over and broken on the terrace and had to chase down chair pillows in the yard. You folks in El Alto must really have gotten it (unless my microclimate was unusually hard hit)!

Seems like closing the hiking path would be a good idea until this weather lets up a bit...if it does.  That's brutal

Santa and his reindeer are in for a rough ride according to the  Emergency Operations Center (COE) of the Civil Protection System (Sinaproc) which updated  its intense winds warning throughout the country on Christmas Eve.

The speeds can vary between 25 kilometers per hour (km / h) up to 50 km / h and higher gusts that can reach up to 80 km / h.

According to the COE, this could cause tree falls and detachment of roofs  that are not properly anchored

Adverse maritime conditions are foreseen in the Caribbean, due to the acceleration of the trade winds generating frequent waves and heights between 3-5 m, on the Caribbean coasts of the country.

The COE is monitoring and analyzing the conditions and will continue to issue  updates.
