Hurricane Iota roared ashore as a dangerous Category 4 storm along almost exactly the same stretch of Nicaragua’s Caribbean coast that was devastated by an equally powerful Hurricane Eta 13 days earlier. Iota had intensified into an extremely dangerous Category 5 storm during the day Monday, but the U.S. National Hurricane Center said it weakened slightly as it neared the coast late Monday and made landfall with maximum sustained winds of 155 mph.
Iota now moves toward Honduras, a country still reeling from Eta with tens of thousands homeless. The storm was forecast to rake across El Salvador and southern Honduras over the next 24 to 36 hours, the hurricane center said.
Following Eta, Honduras had reported 74 deaths and nearly 57,000 people in shelters, mostly in the north.
