PANAMA : Drought Drains Power; Electrical Rationing Mandated.
Latin America's fastest growing economy is suffering a huge blow from Mother Nature.
An ongoing severe drought has forced President Martinelli to close all schools...and curtail government office hours...to save electricity...until further notice.
Businesses must shut down from 22:oo to 6:00 M-Th....and must shut-off their AC from 11:00-15:00...often the hottest time of the day.
About 60% of Panama's energy comes from hydro power.
