Inchape banner3Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) is advising that Chile’s Port Authority has issued a warning of adverse weather conditions and strong swells affecting the Chilean coast over the next two days, with a new weather front of heavy rain forecast to arrive on Thursday 6th August.

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.  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. People are also being warned to stay away from immediate coastal areas.

ISS Chile will continue to monitor developments and keep its clients updated.
