Hurricane Eta hits Central America

Hurricane Eta (now classified as a tropical storm) has caused severe flooding, strong winds, and heavy rain across parts of Central America, with evacuations in Nicaragua and Honduras. Nicaragua remains on high alert for landslides, flooding, and damage to property in the aftermath of the storm, which at the time of writing is moving north into Honduras and is expected to pass into Belize at a lower intensity. El Salvador and Guatemala have each experienced adverse weather conditions, evacuating some residents. Costa Rica has been monitoring for indirect effects of the hurricane in its own territory.
