Rain Soaked Central America

For those not watching the weather in Central America, it is a very tough time down there right now.

The latest report tonight is of a Category One hurricane approaching the coastline of Honduras with 75 mph winds. There have been many reports of mudslides, bridges being washed out, rivers overflowing, and general flooding.

Many lives have been lost in Honduras (29), Guatemala (39), El Salvador (34) and Nicaragua (12).

And this from Costa Rica today....

"In Costa Rica, the overflowing of several rivers and creeks was responsible for the deaths of at least two people. The victims were attempting to cross a swollen river and were swept away by the current, the Red Cross reported."
