PUERTO CABEZAS, NICARAGUA - NOVEMBER 16: Palm trees blow by wind as Nicaragua prepares to receive hurricane Iota on November 16, 2020 in Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua. Less than two weeks after being hardly affected by Hurricane Eta, villagers of Puerto Cabezas take precautions before landfall of Iota. Iota is the 13th hurricane of the season to hit the Atlantic coast and has already strengthened to category five, threatening the area with catastrophic winds and heavy rains.

Hurricane Iota on Tuesday slammed into an already storm-ravaged Nicaragua as a Category 4 storm. It is now a tropical storm, but there remains a danger of life-threatening floods, catastrophic winds and mudslides.

(CNN)Hurricane Iota on Tuesday slammed into an already storm-ravaged Nicaragua as a Category 4 storm.

The landfall was just 15 miles south of where Hurricane Eta hit two weeks ago.

Non-profits are mounting relief efforts across Nicaragua, Honduras and Guatemala to provide shelter, food and medical care to those left in need after the storm pushes through.

Iota is the 13th hurricane of the historic 2020 Atlantic hurricane season.

The combined devastation from Iota, Eta and the coronavirus pandemic will likely plague the area -- already suffering from a poor public health system -- for years to come.
