Storm Nate Kills at least 1 in Honduras, Government Says

TEGUCIGALPA – A 22-year-old woman swept away when a stream overflowed its banks in Choluteca, a province on the border with Nicaragua, is the first person killed by Tropical Storm Nate in Honduras, emergency services officials said on Thursday.

Lesli Escobar Funez was swept away by floodwaters on Wednesday night.

Firefighters found the young woman’s body on Thursday morning about 3 kilometers (1.8 miles) from the spot where she was last seen alive.

Escobar suddenly found herself caught in the raging waters of a stream in Tierra Blanca, a district in the city of Namasigüe, the fire department said.

Emergency management officials have declared alerts in several provinces amid the torrential rains from Tropical Storm Nate, which is off the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua.
