The river flow is still low and the rain which has been falling for the last couple of days have been unable to make the Chagres River levels rise, and in a journey of the DIAaDIA team did, They observed the level of water has not risen significantly.

However, according to the website of the Electricity Transmission Company SA (Etesa), scattered showers were expected today in the morning, thunderstorms with rain in the afternoon and cloudy skies in the evening hours with the possibility of rain.

Cesar Osorio, chief Etesa forecast, said the same thing, adding there could be a variation in the climatic conditions in which there could be more rain than expected.

Meanwhile, reservoir levels are maintained to date in 1016.690 meters above sea level for the hydroelectric plant La Fortuna, Bayano with 52.641 m and Changuinola with 154.820 m, representing a slight increase compared to the levels seen last week. (Dia A Dia)
