Orange alert for three departments: Inumet forecasts strong storms for the next few hours

The National Institute of Meteorology (Inumet) issued this Saturday afternoon alerts orange and yellow due to strong storms for several locations in the country.

It is due to a “atmospheric disturbance associated with moist and unstable air mass” that affects the country “generating storms, some punctually strong,” he said.

“It should be noted that in storm zones intense rains may be recorded in short periods, occasional hail falls, intense electrical activity and strong gusts of wind,” the agency said.

Inumet will update the alert at 10:30 p.m. or in case of possible changes.
