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.
