Access to some of the most affected areas in Honduras remains difficult.

This Friday, the governments of Honduras and Nicaragua began to take precautions to limit the damage that tropical storm Iota may cause.

On the planned trajectory, Iota will move through the center of the Caribbean Sea during the next two days and will approach the coasts of Nicaragua and northeast Honduras between Sunday afternoon and Monday, according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC , in English) from the United States.

In Honduras, for example, the evacuation of much of the coastal zone was ordered —for the second time in less than a month— after the formation of a new depression was announced (the 30th of the season in the Atlantic), which was called Iota.

Meteorologists noted that this tropical storm is expected to become a “great hurricane” once it reaches land, which is expected to occur this Sunday.
