Yesterday, reports La Nacion, two other bridges were shut down due to structural damages, stranding townspeople who rely on the bridges to get them to the main highways.

One of the bridges is over the Burro River, on the road between San Ramon and Tres Esquinas de La Fortuna. The other bridge is over the Nandayure River in Guanacaste province, resulting in the inhabitants of Zapotal and Bejuco being cut off from the larger nearby town of Carmona. Apparently there is a rough alternative route between the towns that requires a 4 x 4 vehicle. No one was hurt when these bridge collapsed.
