Flood waters ravage Panama

Flood waters swept through Panama on Sunday (November 25) after non-stop heavy rains caused rivers to burst their banks near residential areas of the Central American country. Authorities declared worst-hit areas north and west of the country an emergency zone as strong currents of flood waters damaged ramshackle homes, blocked access to roads and cut off a number of bridges. Residents in impoverished areas were unable to salvage much from their homes as rampaging floodwaters hit with little notice. According to local media, two residents died after the downpour set off a landslide. Authorities estimate up to 800 homes could be damaged by the recent rains and flooding.
