Locals move on street barely cleared from the debris of the last storm, before Hurricane Iota makes landfall in La Lima, Honduras, Monday, November 16, 2020. Hurricane Iota rapidly strengthened Monday into a Category 5 storm that is likely to bring catastrophic damage to the same part of Central America already battered by a powerful Hurricane Eta less than two weeks ago.

  • Locate a safe shelter.
  • Stock an emergency preparedness kit, including water and food for at least three days, medications, a flashlight, batteries, cash and first aid supplies.
  • Review insurance policies and make sure important documents are in a safe place.
