And Then, It Rained...

WeatherSo much for the social security reform protests. If there's one thing Panamanians won't do, it's protest in a downpour like this. At 6:30 AM local we are having a classic Panamanian gully-washer. If this keeps up all day, then the protests won't happen. The movement is from the southeast to the northwest, and this has the "feel" of a system that might produce heavy rains all day.

This shot (the radar image from the Panama Canal) really does not do justice to the downpour and storm that's passing by right now. These are the kinds of storms that go out into the caribbean and form into hurricanes. We see then as seed systems, lot's of rain but no wind.

This is the regional map...

And this is a close-up of the Panama area.

I am an expat from the U.S. living here in Panama City since January of this year. I love Panama City but am very concerned about living in a country where the government, police and the military refuse to protect it's citizens and willingly give up control of the streets to mob rule. The violence these mobs have shown will only increase in severity over time. As soon as these thugs are able to secure weapons this protest as it is called, will escalate to a revolution. Most of the local people look at this issue as nothing more than a nuisance. Hopefully they will wake up before it's too late like it has already become in many other countries. Sincerely, very concerened
