I am aware that not all news makes it to the front page, however...
It seems very strange that the unprecedented flooding in Panama is not reported in the media.

Take a look. The Panama Canal was closed due to flooding first time in nearly 100 years.

In this video, I have never seen anything like it.
Is this an Island that has uprooted and is rushing down in the flood!?

Flooding Closes Panama Canal, Forces Evacuations

Flooding forced the closure of the Panama Canal Dec. 8, for the first time in 21 years — and heavy rains were being blamed for at least eight deaths in the Central American country.

More than 1,000 people in Panama were evacuated because of what authorities called historic flooding caused by record rainfall.

President Ricardo Martinelli said it was the first time the canal was closed because of weather since it opened in 1914.

Water Undrinkable Yet Rationed for 1 Million Panamanians
PANAMA CITY – After the worst downpours Panama has seen in the last 200 years, close to a million inhabitants of the capital have their water rationed and, for the first time in decades, cannot drink it directly because of contamination.

The complicated situation has no short-term solution, Panamanian Health Minister Franklin Vergara told reporters Saturday, adding that the latest analyses of 56 samples of water from the chief purification facility in the capital show no presence of bacteria

Emergency Funding Request Due To Floods

Panama is near the Equator.
Is this unprecedented weather from the drastic changes that have occured in The North Atlantic Current?

Wow, I had no idea. I haven't seen this anywhere. I frequent a lot of news web sites and this has not been reported or it just hasn't caught my eye. I pay close attention to that area of the world because I have family in Costa Rica. Thanks for posting and I'll keep looking.

Funny how no one is reporting on this.

I would not have known if I was not told by a freind.
You would think it would make the news or something.

Wow. Not reporting this just like they're not reporting Australia and not reporting Mt Etna. Curiouser and curiouser.

Hell here in the US all they're talking about is Palin and secondarily it seems what happened in Tuscon. That's it.

Donate to the Relief Fund for the Flood ... note, I don't really know how much money is "enough" for such a relief, but the flood looks to be quite devastating.

there are more people dead in both those countries than the australian floods but they dont even a mention because they are both 3rd world countries

I have to wonder about it.

Panama is on the equator and is affected by The North Atlantic Current, which is affected now by drastic changes.

I even remember seeing on TV actually.

It started in December. It is still flooded, and they still have no power.
I never saw it on the dish, nor the internet.

I only found out today, by word of mouth. I think that is strange.
