Emergency shelter and food are bringing relief to victims of major storm in Nicaragua

The remote Miskito Indians who live in jungle villages and on tiny, reef islands along the Honduran-Nicaraguan border went about their usual daily routines on September 4. Fisherman took to the ocean to dive for lobster. Farmers went into their fields.

Without access to television, radio, or the internet, they were unaware that a major hurricane was hours away. They had no chance to evacuate or take shelter.

Hurricane Felix smashed into Nicaragua later that day as a powerful Category 5 storm.
