Hurricane Iota has intensified to Category 5 as it bears down on Central America. The National Hurricane Center says it could be even more devastating than Hurricane Eta from two weeks ago.
The Atlantic Ocean has seen 30 named storms and hurricanes this year, smashing the record number of 28 from 2005.
Eva DeHart with For Haiti with Love says this season of hurricanes and storms has made ministry in Haiti very difficult.
“They’ve had a lot of mudslides,” DeHart says. “The city of Cap-Haitien was pretty much just one big mud puddle. Cars couldn’t navigate the streets because they were getting stuck…. They didn’t even get a chance to clean up between storms so it has just kept accumulating.”
Thankfully, For Haiti with Love’s headquarters are pretty high up in the Haitian mountains and stable enough during storms. But their burn clinic’s numbers have increased.
