The Atlantic hurricane names Dorian, Laura, Eta and Iota are being retired due to the trail of death and destruction left in their wake
Central American countries hope to resume environmental talks in their relations with the United States when Joe Biden takes office, says Costa Rican Foreign Minister Rodolfo Solano.
Central American countries began to see an improvement in the weather on Wednesday after suffering the violent impact of cyclone Iota, which dissipated over El Salvador after leaving at least 14 dead, flooded towns and damage to road infrastructure.
The current hurricane season in the Atlantic has broken records. Iota is the 13th of 30 named storms recorded this year to reach hurricane status.
Hurricane Iota’s landfall location was just 15 miles (25 km) south of where Hurricane Eta made landfall just two weeks before, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Hurricane Iota was barreling through Central America on Tuesday, hours after making landfall as the strongest Atlantic storm this year along a stretch of Nicaraguan coast devastated by a powerful storm just two weeks ago.
Iota made landfall Monday on Nicaragua's northern Caribbean coast as a maximum Category 5 hurricane, accompanied by catastrophic winds, rain and storm surge, a top meteorological official said.
Central American presidents on Monday appealed to the financial community and international organizations for resources to support the reconstruction of their respective countries.
Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua announced evacuations last week, even as the region was still reeling from the devastation inflicted by previous storm Eta.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) announced Monday morning that Iota has strengthened into a catastrophic Category 5 hurricane.
