SEPTEMBER  is typically  the time when Panama has some of its worst storms and the civil defense agency  SINAPROC issued its first warning  for the month on Sunday September 4 .

The meteorology division of the electric transmission company ETESA,  forecast heavy rain storms with strong gusts of wind.

Expect more of the same in the coming weeks, compounded by uncertainty over the effects of climate change.

Severe flooding earlier this afternoon near Aserrio de Bugaba and Paso Canoas, with at least 7 homes being lost and another 50 inundated. At one point the PanAmerican Highway was impassable.
