The storm formerly known as Hurricane Eta slowly dragged across Honduras Wednesday, dumping heavy rains across the region and prompting emergency flood and landslide warnings. A 15-year-old boy drowned in a rain-swollen river, bringing the storm’s direct death toll to four. Hundreds of homes were destroyed by floodwaters in San Pedro Sula alone, according to the city’s mayor. At least 38 Honduran communities have been cut off by washed-out roads, and five bridges in the country were wiped out by swollen rivers. La Prensa Nicaragua also reported multiple Indigenous communities were forced to self-evacuate and were caught unaware after officials failed to warn them of Hurricane Eta’s arrival. Some of those communities are the same that were violently attacked by settlers earlier this year. Eta, which is now a Tropical Depression but may strengthen to a Tropical Storm, is currently projected to hit Cuba and Florida, bringing heavy rains and flooding to the Southeast US.
