Chile’s Port Authority has issued a warning of adverse weather conditions and strong swells affecting the Chilean coast over the next two days, Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) reports.
Ports in the north, along with the central region – Quintero, Valparaiso and San Antonio – remain closed and port operations are subject to Port Authority evaluation.
A new weather front of heavy rain is forecast to arrive on Thursday, August 6.
The warning follows other recent adverse weather in Chile, with the Port Authority already warning of expected damage to some ports as a result of local conditions.
People are also being warned to stay away from immediate coastal areas.
