A powerful Hurricane Iota category 4 made landfall on the coast of Nicaragua late Monday, sparking warnings of a life-threatening storm surge and flash flooding in a region recently battered by Hurricane Eta.  

Eta’s torrential rains saturated the soil in the region, leaving it prone to new deadly landslides and floods, forecasters warned. Hurricane Eta killed more than 130 people in the region as torrential rains caused flash floods and mudslides in parts of Central America.

There are already a lot of houses that lost their roofs, fences and power lines knocked down. Iotas is expected  to produce 30" of rainfall.
