Wet El Salvador
Heavy rains have soaked parts of El Salvador in the past ten days as the heart of the rainy season commences. First, Pacific tropical storm Alma came ashore through Costa Rica causing damage and then bringing heavy rains to El Salvador. Flash floods from heavy rains swept away and drowned two girls in Usulatan department. This week, weather affected by tropical storm Arthur has been causing deluges in the central and western part of El Salvador. At least 60 homes were flooded and hundreds of people evacuated in various communities as rivers rose. Much of the country remains under a yellow alert for flooding and similar problems caused by the rains. There are photo galleries of the flooding here and here
