Tropical Storm Matthew

Matthew Expected in Honduras

September 24th, 2010 · No Comments

Hondurans are busy preparing for Tropical Storm Matthew, nailing wood over windows, stocking up on provisions, and sandbagging flood prone areas.

Tropical Storm Matthew’s winds have increased to 50 miles (85 kilometers) an hour from 45 mph earlier today, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) has reported. A hurricane warning is in place from Puerto Cabezas in Nicaragua to Limon, Honduras, including the offshore islands of Guanaja, Utila, Roatan, and the outlying keys (cays). Winds of 74 mph are expected within 36 hours.

Please pray for Honduras. They have already had way too much rain these past few weeks. This storm could devastate the country even more. Pray for the people who are going to be affected by rain, mudslides, and wind damage. I may not live there anymore but that country and its people definitely still own my heart.
