Hurricane Iota hits Nicaragua with intensity

November 17, 2020

Iota made landfall as a Category 4 major hurricane along the coast of northeastern Nicaragua Monday night, bringing sustained winds near 155 mph—just 2 mph below Category 5 status. Forecasts call for heavy rainfall that could bring life-threatening flash flooding and river flooding through Thursday across portions of Central America.

Iota made landfall just miles away from where Eta made landfall less than two weeks ago—further impacting an area still in recovery and raising concerns for more flash flooding and devastating landslides across portions of Honduras, Nicaragua and Guatemala.

Iota lost much of its wind intensity today as it moves inland, and it has been downgraded to a tropical storm.

Tropical Storm Nana heads toward Central America

September 02, 2020

Tropical Storm Nana formed Tuesday in the Caribbean Sea and is tracking toward landfall, most likely in Belize, by early Thursday. The storm may become a hurricane just prior to landfall, possibly bringing storm surge flooding and damaging winds. Nana could also bring flooding rain to parts of Honduras, Belize, Guatemala and eastern Mexico. A tropical storm watch has been issued in Belize and northern Honduras, including Roatan Island and the Bay Islands.

Typhoon Vamco brings more devastation to the Philippines

November 12, 2020

Typhoon Vamco, also referred to as Ulysses in the Philippines, arrived late Wednesday with wind gusts of up to 255 kph. The storm killed at least seven people, submerged tens of thousands of homes and brought some of the worst flooding in years to the capital Manila.

It struck the northern island of Luzon—the third typhoon and fifth tropical cyclone to affect the Philippines in less than three weeks—striking areas still recovering from Goni, this year’s most powerful typhoon in the world. Local officials reported that 36 cities and towns were inundated, flights and mass transit in Manila were suspended and port operations stopped, government work was halted and financial markets were shut down.

Vamco was headed towards Vietnam, where devastating floods and mudslides have killed at least 160 people in central areas over the past month.
