Ice  falls on Panama’s  Coastal Strip

Post Views: 434
Panama’s unpredictable dry summer season accompanied by flooding and high waves that have hampered boating operations and caused deaths added a fresh touch, on Thursday, January 18, as strollers on the Cinta Costera and Avenida Balboa in the capital city rushed to gathered handfuls of ice from walkways.

It came from a heavy storm bringing unaccustomed hail. According to Etesa meteorologists, it was owing to a local storm cell accompanied by a low-pressure system and wind-driven clouds that created an unstable atmosphere.

Once again, Newsroom uses a file photo that totally misrepresents a situation.

We were right down there on Avenida Balboa on Thursday evening and although there was some sleety rain for a while, we didn't see any hail.

Not saying some didn't fall somewhere but there certainly wouldn't have been any icebergs as shown.
