Monster Felix Slams Central American Coast

Breaking Storm News
Category 5 Red Alert
Central America

SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras - Hurricane Felix roared ashore early Tuesday as a fearsome Category 5 storm — the first time in recorded history that two top-scale storms have come ashore in the same season. The storm hit near the swampy Nicaragua-Honduras border, home to thousands of stranded Miskito Indians dependent on canoes to make their way to safety.

Twenty fishermen were missing, and communication to the area was cut off.
