Eta Makes Landfall in Florida Keys After Devastating Central America, Killing at Least 150

HeadlineNov 09, 2020

Tropical Storm Eta has made landfall in the Florida Keys just days after devastating Central America and portions of southern Mexico, leaving over 150 people dead and tens of thousands displaced across the region. In Guatemala, where most of the deaths have been reported, rescuers continue to search for dozens of missing people buried by mudslides. Meanwhile, a small aircraft carrying food and medicine for survivors of Eta crashed in Guatemala City yesterday. The storm also left flooded coastal zones as it passed Cuba, where at least 25,000 were evacuated.
