Hurricane Eta has caused significant flooding, mudslides, and road damage in Chiriqui Province, particularly in the Tierras Altas district and towns of Cerro Punta, Paso Ancho, and Volcan.  The road from David, Chiriqui to Changuinola, Bocas del Toro has been severely damaged and is currently closed.  Panama’s National Civil Protection Agency (SINAPROC) is monitoring the situation on the ground and working to assist individuals in the affected areas.  


For updated information, please check SINAPROC’s website and social media feeds and continue to monitor local media outlets.  The Embassy also suggests that those living in affected areas seek secure shelter and notify their family and friends of their safety.
