Thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes as Hurricane Otto heads towards Nicaragua and Costa Rica.
Heavy rains from the unusually strong late-season storm have already been blamed for three deaths in Panama.
Otto was forecast to make landfall in in Nicaragua, just north of the Costa Rican border, on Thursday.
Officials in Costa Rica ordered the evacuation of 4,000 people from its Caribbean coast and closed schools for the rest of the week.
Heavy rain was already causing flooding in some areas as public employees were told to stay at home on Thursday and Friday.
The country's National Meteorological Institute says it will be the first time a hurricane has made landfall in Costa Rica since records began.
