El Nino threatens Panama Canal shipping
Transport in the Panama Canal could be affected by the drought brought by "El Niño", the canal authority, ACP, said.
The canal operates through a system of locks that require 202,000 cubic feet of water per lock, which comes from rain that gathers in artificial lakes.
Facing a forecast drop in rain, the ACP will have to limit the number of ships using the waterway, depending on their size.
