Excerpt
Excerpt: Central America is well known to be a region vulnerable to natural disasters, whether hurricanes, droughts or earthquakes. During the final week of October 1998, Hurricane Mitch ? arguably the worst natural disaster of the 20th Century ? hit five of the region?s six countries (Costa Rica is not included in this study), and Honduras and Nicaragua in particular. Its devastating force reached category 5 on the Saffir- Simpson scale. The hurricane brought sustained winds of 288 km/h and gusts of up to 340 km/h.
