Of which at least 2 will be generated over the Caribbean Sea.
“We can see significant change in the first two months of the year compared to last year, and there has been a rainfall deficit for this year throughout the country for the second semester of studies should be made again to see if they remain forecasts.” said Juan Carlos Fallas of IMN.
