El Canal de Panamá restringe el paso de barcos por el descenso del nivel del agua en los lagos a consecuencia de el fenómeno de El Niño

Panama-canal

New depth restrictions will be imposed on ships in the Panama Canal after water levels fell at nearby lakes. 
 
 The Panama Canal Authority (APC), which manages the waterway, has announced ships hoping to cross must comply with a maximum depth limit of 39 feet (11.89 meters) beginning on April 18.
 
 The "temporary and preventative measures" are due to the effect of the El Nino weather pattern which has caused a drought in the surrounding area.
