Case Study

In 1998 the most destructive hurricane to strike the Western Hemisphere in the last 200 years savaged the countries of Central America. Hurricane Mitch thrashed the region with 180 mph winds and dumped between 300 and 1800 mm. of deluging rains on Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and El Salvador. Finally, after six horrifying days, the torrential rains stopped......this is the story of that hurricane.
