Tropical Storm Eta has already killed dozens in GuatemalaMexico, and Honduras after unleashing flooding and mudslides. Now, the enormous storm has turned nearly stationary, threatening parts of Florida and Cuba with heavy rain and flooding.

2020 is the most active hurricane season on record for the Atlantic Ocean, with 29 storms forming over the course of the year.

Helen Williams of World Missionary Press describes a scene from Honduras, where WMP has a contact. “It is just heart-wrenching. He is our national coordinator in Honduras, and he said they’ve been affected tremendously, in the northern part of Honduras, particularly. His town is almost entirely flooded. And that’s what it looked like. Water up to the rooftops of the houses, thousands of houses flooded, bridges fallen, crops destroyed. More than 100,000 people live in shelters, thousands of crops have been destroyed. We need a lot of help, he says. It stopped raining, he said, but the damage left is absolutely enormous.”
