Flood in Honduras
During the month of September, floods and landslides caused by the rainy season in Honduras resulted in at least 16 fatalities and about 3,500 damaged or destroyed houses, as reported by UN OCHA.
In the Guillén neighbourhood, northeast of Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras, people were evacuated due to losing their homes to landslides. The flood situation in the country was exacerbated by the passage of Tropical Storm JULIA in southern Honduras, which left at least 144,000 people affected.
National authorities carried out a survey to evaluate the degree of damage and collect information to rapidly identify the humanitarian needs of the affected population.
