PHOTOS: President Luis Guillermo Solís visits areas affected by floods in Costa Rica’s Limón province
President Luis Guillermo Solís visited damaged areas in the Caribbean province of Limón on Wednesday and Thursday after heavy rains last weekend caused floods in Costa Rica’s Caribbean and northern regions.
President Solís inspected Route 32 and visited communities in Guápiles, Matina, Siquirres, Sixaola and Talamanca. Using a Panamanian helicopter he also conducted flyovers to assess the damage.
Although weather conditions have improved and rainfall has returned to normal levels, pineapple and banana plantations are left with serious damage, and public infrastructure needs to be rebuilt as thousands of people that were evacuated return to their homes.
