They issue a new prevention notice for waves and rip currents until this Friday

The National Civil Protection System (Sinaproc) issued a prevention notice until Friday, August 5, due to the increase in waves and rip currents in the Pacific of Panama.

According to the Department of Hydrometeorology of Etesa, the arrival of light to moderate swells on the Panamanian Pacific coast is expected, increasing the waves and generating the effect of choppy seas.

Greater intensity is expected on Thursday, August 4. Waves of up to 2 meters high and periods of 13 to 20 seconds are expected.

Maritime areas under notice:

  • Eastern Caribbean: Gulf and Bay of Panama.
  • Central Caribbean: Los Santos and Veraguas South.
  • Western Caribbean: Gulf of Chiriquí.

Sinaproc asks to abide by prevention measures:

  • Bathers and captains of light boats must take the usual security measures.
  • Avoid carrying out activities in coastal areas.
  • If you are setting sail in light craft, make sure you have personal flotation devices and a working radio.
  • If you live near coastal areas, be aware of waves that can be life-threatening and cause flooding.

Sinaproc urges the population to stay informed through official sources of any event that may be registered and to take preventive measures. For emergencies contact 520-4429.
