report Christian Aid

Evacuations from coastal areas began in earnest yesterday, as a 'potentially catastrophic' hurricane threatened Central America. Christian Aid staff and partners have been working with local emergency committees to help communities identify emergency shelters.

Hurricane Felix is a powerful category five hurricane - the highest rating possible. It has just struck the Caribbean coast of northeast Nicaragua, near the border with Honduras, with wind speeds of up to 160 miles per hour. Over the next two days, Felix is expected to sweep over Honduras, Guatemala, Belize and Mexico.
