Nicaragua hit by Category 1 heavy rains

Hurricane Julia hit Nicaragua on Sunday as a Category 1 with high-speed winds of 85 miles per hour.

Julia reached the landing in Nicaragua at around 3:14 a.m. It struck the Colombian island of San Andres and progressed from a tropical storm to a hurricane on Saturday night.

The National Hurricane Center warned “Life-threatening flash floods and mudslides from heavy rains across Central America and southern Mexico possible through Tuesday.” These areas could also see about 8-15 inches of rain.

Other parts of Central America could see about 4 to 12 inches of rain.

Julia was located about 65 miles east-northeast of the Nicaraguan capital Managua and was moving west at 15 mph on Sunday, the NHC said.

No fatalities were reported, but there were reports of damage from roofs being blown off houses and trees collapsing.

Julia is expected to head towards the coasts of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala and eventually the Guatemalan coast, the NHC said.

Severe storm conditions are expected to slow after passing through Nicaragua through Sunday night.
