Emergency relief scaled up in Costa Rica amid flooding

Monday, October 16, 2017


Heavy flooding across Costa Rica has displaced thousands and disrupted critical water and sanitation services, leaving more than 500,000 people without drinking water across the country.

Torrential rains that have poured down on Costa Rica since mid-September, were made worse by Tropical Storm Nate, which hit the Central American country in early October, clogging drainage systems and disrupting waste disposal systems.
