MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Hurricane Julia slammed into Nicaragua on Sunday carrying high winds of as much as 85 miles per hour (140 kph) and a storm surge, the U.S. Nationwide Hurricane Middle stated, warning of harmful climate within the coming days throughout the area.
The storm made landfall early on Sunday close to Laguna de Perlas, the NHC stated. By 5 a.m. (0900 GMT) it was round 30 miles (50 km) north-northwest of Bluefields.
The hurricane was anticipated to step by step weaken because it crosses Nicaragua, rising over the jap Pacific by Sunday night time. It was forecast to maneuver close to or alongside the Pacific coasts of Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala on Monday and Monday night time, the NHC stated.
“Life-threatening flash floods and mudslides potential from heavy rains over Central America and Southern Mexico by early subsequent week,” the middle stated.
