Agustín Moreira, a specialist in natural phenomena, pointed out that 252 continuous discharges fell during the morning, in just one hour in the department of León. The rains began in the afternoon in a large part of the national territory and will continue until the end of the day.

The expert believes that the rains will go from light to heavy, especially in the Mining Triangle and light rainfall will be recorded at about nine o’clock at night in the Pacific region.

For the next few days, heavy rains are expected in the departments of Estelí, Somoto, Matagalpa and Ocotal. Thunderstorms could persist through the afternoon on Friday, the expert said.

Different systems predominate in the national territory

The authorities of the Nicaraguan Institute of Territorial Studies (INETER) point out that the climatic conditions will be changing due to the different systems that occur in the country. In western Nicaragua, as in Central America, there is a trough axis, while in the south of the country will be the intertropical convergence zone. They point out that electrical storms will occur occasionally.

What to do during a thunderstorm?

During a thunderstorm, experts recommend not taking shelter in trees and staying away from bodies of water if you are outside. At home, doors and windows should be closed, not go out to witness the rain, you should also make sure to disconnect all electrical appliances, not touch fallen wires or carry out electrical installations during a rain.
