Rains flood homes and kill 3,000 chickens

Dozens of houses and streets in Arroyo Abajo and Fracatán are flooded due to the overflowing of the Nibaje and Diablo creeks after heavy downpours.

The rains damaged household goods and there was a momentary evacuation of families; traffic was obstructed for hours.

The director of the Civil Defense, Francisco Arias, reported the overflowing of the Mecier Bogaer canal, in the municipal district of La Canela, which flooded houses and a chicken farm, killing three thousand chickens.

Meanwhile, the National Meteorological Office predicted moderate to heavy downpours, thunderstorms, and wind in the northeast, Central Cordillera, north, and southeast, due to the effect of a trough, and tomorrow there will only be scattered downpours in the northeast and Central Cordillera.
