Flooding

Just a quick note to address the flooding that you may have heard about on the news.

Yes, there has been signifigant flooding and some landslides in Western Panama. There has been both loss of property and life in the regions of Chiriquí and Bocas del Toro.

Kevin and I are safe. Our community will likely not be impacted at all as we have great drainage to the gulf. Other PCVs and thier communities are impacted, mostly in thier ability to travel.

Our thanksgiving day plans have been changed to a location that is less impacted by the rains. So life is good.

It is Tuesday night and we just spoke to Kevin. All is well and they will be celebrating Thanksgiving somewhere between Santiago and Panama City. It was not easy to find news of the flooding -- thank heavens for CNN and BBC.
Happy Thanksgiving, Mom & Dad C.
