Main image
On Thursday, November 5th Eta moved across the central portions of Honduras and the system emerged over the northwestern Caribbean Sea on Friday, November 6th. The most heavily affected countries are Nicaragua and Honduras; however, other countries in Central America, such as Guatemala, El Salvador, Belize, Costa Rica and Panama have also been impacted with increased rainfall, flash flooding and landslides. In Honduras, over 1,600,000 people have been directly affected and more than 3,300 families have been evacuated. In Nicaragua, over 38,000 people have been affected and 4,190 people have been evacuated. IFRC and National Societies are assisting people affected by Hurricane Eta and coordinating with local leadership and authorities in preparation for the possible impact of the storm in other countries. IFRC has launched an Emergency Appeal which seeks a total of 20 million Swiss francs (CHF) on a preliminary basis, to support the Honduran, Nicaraguan and Guatemalan Red Cross to deliver assistance and support early recovery of the people affected by the Hurricane Eta over the next 24 months.
