Southern Storms Creating Big Waves for the Pacific Coast This Week

The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – On Tuesday and Wednesday waves up to 2.5 meters high on the Pacific coast are expected, especially in the central Pacific.

Omar Lizano, oceanographer Research Center in Marine Sciences and Limnology, University of Costa Rica (Cimarron), explained that this condition is due to a number of “extra-tropical storms.”

It is a low pressure system south of the southern hemisphere pushing these strong water currents north, and pose a risk to swimmers, surfers and fishermen.

Hence Lizano has advised that people should avoid swimming or fishing in these two days, given the strong waves that are expected across Central America. Salvadoran authorities have issued a similar warning.
