Sinaproc issues high tide warning in the Pacific until April 2

The National Civil Protection System (Sinaproc) issued a prevention notice (surveillance and monitoring), due to the high tides that will occur in the Panamanian Pacific in the coming days.

According to Sinaproc, the maximum tides that will reach the height of about 17.5 feet (5.33 meters) will be recorded from 3:41 pm, this Sunday, March 28, 2021, until 7:29 pm, Friday April 2, 2021.

The National Emergency Operations Center (COE) warns that if heavy rains and peak tides coincide, floods could occur, mainly in the country's coastal areas.

Prevention measures:

- Avoid activities on the Pacific coast
- Artisanal fishermen must use navigation equipment and personal flotation devices (life jackets).
- Keep an eye on children and older adults who are on the shore of the beaches.
- In case of floods, keep calm and call the emergency entities.
