I just wanted to let everyone know that the weather is hot and sunny today up here in the mountains of Lempira. Our part of this tropical event is over. There are some roads washed out in our area, and at least one person (an 11 year old boy) died locally as he tried to cross a swollen stream. A brand new, government-built bridge was washed away in our department, and several communities are cut off from the rest of the world until some roads are repaired. We are in the 'aftermath' stage now.
Serious issues continue in the low lying areas, where the rivers are flooding from the rain water that fell up here in the mountains. The capital has areas underwater, around the country there are bridges out and roads that have been closed due to landslides.
In all, so far, I've heard of ten deaths in Honduras, and nine additional people missing. These numbers will certainly change somewhat, but we seem to have been spared the kind of devastation which might have been the case.
Please continue to pray for those who have been harmed by this event, in Honduras and Guatemala.
