Hurricane Iota

Hurricane Iota hammered Central America as a catastrophic category 4 storm just weeks after Hurricane Eta tore through the region. Send Relief is ready to respond.


Just two weeks after Hurricane Eta slammed into Central America, Hurricane Iota struck the same region on November 16 as a slow-moving, category 4 hurricane. With maximum sustained winds of 155 miles per hour, Iota was the latest Atlantic hurricane of a record-breaking 2020 hurricane season.

According to early reports, Iota brought extreme winds, life-threatening storm surge and a maximum of 30 inches of rain to an area still reeling from the devastating effects of Hurricane Eta.
