On Nov. 3, 2020, Tropical Storm Eta made a landfall in Nicaragua and subsequently crashed into Central America, making it one of the most powerful storms to hit the region in years. The storm had weakened from the Category 4 hurricane that battered the coast, but the heavy rain caused flooding and triggered landslides that killed more than 100 people across 3 countries, including Guatemala and Honduras.

The local scenery on the ground is as follows.
