Guatemala on Alert for Flooding

Heavy rains from Tropical Storm Alex have been falling across Guatemala. Here in Izabal it rained steadily all night although there was little or no thunderstorm activity. Conred has issued an orange alert for all of Guatemala and a special high alert for Izabal. No serious flooding has yet taken place but there are dozens of rivers throughout Guatemala that are capable of flooding and causing destruction.

Rain is expected to continue today (Sunday) and into the week so the alerts remain in force.
