Storm Damage

Several Central American countries were hit by Hurricane Mitch. This page looks at the most devastating aspects of the destruction.

*A hurricane is a violent tropical cyclone with winds moving at 73 or more mph often accompanied by torrential rains and originating usually in the West Indian Region: winds of hurricane force sometimes occur in the absence of a hurricane system.
