There also is a probability of rain in the southern part of the country near the border with Panamá, said the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional. Once again, winds from the north will keep heavy rains out of the Central Valley, according to the
forecast. There is a possibility of strong winds in the valley, in Guanacaste and in the northern zone, said the weather institute.
The Consejo Nacional de Vialidad, the road agency, said that travel will be restricted at Ruta 140 in San Miguel de Sarapiquí
Road workers are going to have to construct a retaining wall to support the highway at the point where the slide took place, they said. This means that travel will be restricted from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. until the beginnings of August. The road connects San Miguel with Río Cuarto.
