In Honduras, at least 58 people died and more than 2 million people were affected by floods or collapses due to Eta, the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia reported on November 19. Authorities have evacuated more than 88,000 people and rescued 50,000 others in different operations led by contingency teams from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala, with the support of U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM), in coordination with the Honduran Armed Forces.According to the Pan American Health Organization’s website, in recent decades, Honduras has been hit by several hurricanes, such as Gamma (2005), Beta (2005), Michelle (2001), Katrina (1999), and Mitch (1988). An increase in human settlements in high-risk areas, inappropriate use and deterioration of soil, and poverty among the Honduran population are determining factors in the disaster incidence caused by floods, the organization added.
