La Laja dam down 70% in water storage: Due to irregular rainfall in 2015, La Laja dam in the central area of Azuero, has lost about 70% of the water stored as of February 16, 2016. La Laja dam is one of the largest water reservoirs in Azuero and supplies water for agricultural crops and farm animals in the surrounding areas. The low water storage has left farm animals in the districts of Villa Lourdes and Guabas without water. (M: LA PRENSA)
