One dead and more than 5,000 evacuated due to Costa Rican floods

Costa Rican Red Cross workers evacuate people from their flooded homes near Sixaola, Costa Rica, on the border with Panama, Monday, Nov. 24, 2008. Heavy rains have caused flooding and landslides in southern Costa Rica and western Panama forcing thousands of people to flee the area. One dead, some 5.000 evacuated in 39 communities, 17 towns cut off and 28 roads affected are the result of the rain that has been falling on the Caribbean coast for the last five days.
