Hurricane Iota: Facts, FAQs and How to Help
Hurricane Iota made landfall in Nicaragua as a Category 4 storm on Monday, November 16 along almost exactly the same stretch of coast recently devastated by Hurricane Eta.
With wind speeds up to about 155 miles per hour, the storm battered communities that were already cut off by washed-out bridges, downed trees and flooded roads from Hurricane Eta.
Thousands of children and families were evacuated into crowded shelters, vulnerable not only to the storm's life-threatening winds and storm surges but the coronavirus pandemic's danger as well.
