The director of the National Civil Protection System (Sinaproc), Arturo Alvarado, said the bad weather occurring at this time in Panama City is a system that enters the Bay and is accompanied by thunderstorms. He said the thunderstorms have been in the area of Arraiján since yesterday where there is a lot of cloud cover, like the city of Panama. According to Alvarado the satellite view is a bit complicated, so they cannot predict the end to the rains, but he estimated there will be about four to five hours of rain, as well activity from the convergence zone which is quite active over Panama. The Sinaproc director recommended that people should stay where they are if possible to avoid any possible emergency situation. He said the rain producing system extends from Panama City to the Azuero Peninsula. (Panama America)

Editor's Comment: The SINAPROC always gets spun up when severe weather occurs, because most of the time they end up having to respond to flooding, mudslides, people who get swept away by fast moving water, roads or bridges that get washed out, and those kinds of things. Panama does not get hit by hurricanes, but it sure can rain when it wants to, dumping billions of gallons of water in a very short period in a concentrated area.

Hopefully this will help alleviate some of the drought in that area of Azuero!
