Red Alert Continues For Quepos, Filadelfia, Nicoya, Pérez Zeledón and Buenos Aires
The rain has not let up and more expected for the weekend as parts of Guanacaste continue under water, while those affected in Quepos and the Central Pacific area are starting to pick up the pieces, literally, of what is left of their homes and belongings.

In Guanacaste, the Río Lajas that divides the communities of Bebedero and Bagages, near Cañas, continued to rise and some 25 families needed to be evacuated from their homes, some finding shelter with friends and family, others housed in the community hall.

Red Cross workers have been active in all flooding areas, bringing relief and rescue to many who have been isolated for more than a week.

More than 2.500 litres of drinking water was delivered from the central offices of the Red Cross in San José, in addition to food rations and items for personal hygiene.

Red Cross workers have been in the areas of Los Santos, Cartago, San Isidro, Santa Juana, Naranjillo, Portalón and San Cristóbal to give medical attention to those affected.

The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional - the weatherman - says that a low pressure system is affecting the entire country with rain and the Comisión Nacional de Emergencias is asking everyone to take precautions against the rising rivers and flooding and asking people to evacuate their homes in prevention of loss of life.
