Only once before in NOAA records has a hurriance made landfall in Panama
Martha 1969, but it could happen again very soon. TS Otto has formed off the Atlantic coast of Panama
and is forecast
to make lanfall as a hurricane
highest probability strike zone is from near Bocas del Toro, Panama to Nicaragua
Weve been getting a lot of rain here in the Chiriqui Province of Panama (Western Highlands), so I looked at the weather
a couple of days ago to see why. I noticed a broad area of circulation, rain, and higher winds off the Panamanian coast, but because we are below the hurricane belt, I never thought of it as possibly being a tropical system. I just assumed it was a normal low pressure system sending rain our way....surprise!

Anyone online in Bocas?
