Hurricane victims take refuge in a shelter in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Shelters for people whose homes were flooded or damaged by hurricanes Eta and Iota in Honduras are now so crowded that thousands of victims have taken refuge under highway overpasses or bridges. The Red Cross estimates that about 4.2 million people were affected by the back-to-back hurricanes in November in Honduras, Nicaragua and Guatemala.

People watch the waters of the Rio Bermejo in the wake of Hurricane Iota in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Hurricane Iota tore across Nicaragua on Tuesday, hours after roaring ashore as a Category 4 storm along almost exactly the same stretch of the Caribbean coast that was recently devastated by an equally powerful hurricane.

Wendy Guadalupe Contreras who was left homeless after the last storm hit the area, comforts her son as she speaks on the phone before Hurricane Iota makes landfall in La Lima, Honduras. Hurricane Iota rapidly strengthened 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.
