The National Civil Protection System (Sinaproc), issued a warning of prevention starting at 2:46 am this Friday, July 23, due to maximum tides that will occur in the Panamanian Pacific.
This surveillance and monitoring notice will last until 6:55 am next Wednesday, July 28, and the maximum tides will reach the height of 16.8 feet (5.12 meters).
The national Emergency Operations Center (COEN) warns that if peak tides coincide with heavy rains, floods could occur, mainly in the coastal areas of the country.
Faced with these conditions, Sinaproc recommends:
- Avoid activities on the Pacific coast
- Artisanal fishermen must use navigation equipment and personal flotation devices and life jackets.
