Hurricane Eta Lashes Nicaragua With Severe Rain, Causing Deadly Landslides

At least two people have died in Nicaragua after Hurricane Eta battered Central America on November 3, local media reported.

Confidencial said two miners died due to a landslide caused by the heavy rain in the municipality of Bonanza. The storm also killed at least one person in Honduras, local media reported.

Eta made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 150 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center, but has since been downgraded to a tropical storm.
