Aid Workers Deliver Food by Boat to Honduran Towns Flooded by Deadly Storm Iota

Humanitarian efforts continued in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, on November 18, as workers strove to get supplies to communities impacted by flooding and mudslides from Storm Iota.

At least 38 people were killed in Central America by the storm, according to local reports.

Roads between communities were closed off due to the danger caused by falling trees and damaged power lines, according to local news reports.

Overflowing rivers caused flooding in many areas of San Pedro Sula, including a school, local media reported.

Footage posted by the World Central Kitchen (WCK) shows the flooded streets of La Lima outside San Pedro Sula. Water from the Chamelecon River submerged entire towns, the WCK wrote in a caption.
