My daughter just skyped from Panama. Major power outage for 7 hours there. Glad I wasn't there. Several cities really means most of the country. Heather said she heard only Chiriqui province had power. Power affected all water - meaning they had none. All her friends live in high rise apartments so no elevator service. There is high security to get in buildings so I think they also couldn't get into their buildings. Heather's building is old and uses keys and she's on the 2nd floor.

Apparently a tourist was killed during the explosion.
