Many things have gone back to normal since Tropical Storm Nate caused so much destruction on October 7th. Traffic is flowing although there are a quite a few alternate routes due to road closings; flights are back up and running; power and water have been restored and some people who were placed into shelters have been able to go home. In many ways, a lot of this progress was realized quickly and certainly when compared to other storms and situations happening in the world today the progress has been very impressive.
The country however continues to experience its record breaking rainy season. This means that there have been subsequent mud slides, creating obstacles to some of the progress; particularly the repair of roads and bridges. Fortunately, here in the Southern Zone there has been a steady progression of repair. The La Palma bridge is due to open in a few days’ time and the Inter-Americana from San Jose into Perez Zeledon is already up and running.
For people who have lost their homes, there have been massive efforts to provide them with what they need. It has been amazing to hear stories of individuals, organizations and communities rolling up their sleeves to ensure that rescue and recovery efforts did what was necessary to make individuals and families as comfortable as possible during this stressful time.
The Tico Times published several articles providing informative updates with a great focus on the areas hit the worst. Click here for detail on rescue efforts happening throughout those areas and the entire country.
Summerland Relocation Services is back to normal and we have even had a couple of touring clients who were undeterred by the storm! We’ve been available for all of our clients who live or rent here assisting where possible with property or advice on how best to recover. If you need assistance with your home from the aftermath of the storm or if you simply would like information on any progress we’ve heard of being made in the Southern Zone please send us an email. We will be updating our website as the country continues to make progress towards a full recovery.
