Major Hurricane Iota to hit Nicaragua tonight

 In Event News

Just two weeks after Hurricane Eta struck Nicaragua as a category 4 storm, Iota is forecast to make landfall in northeastern Nicaragua as a category 5 hurricane.

Rapid weakening is expected after Iota makes landfall, but catastrophic winds, life-threatening storm surge and heavy rainfall will impact the region.

Flooding and mudslides could occur in areas already damaged by Hurricane Eta; Hurricane Iota is expected to produce 10-20 inches of rainfall in Honduras, northern Nicaragua, Guatemala and southern Belize.
