Remnants of Tropical Depression Soaking Central America
NASA’s Terra satellite passed over Tropical Storm Hanna on Oct. 27 when it made landfall near the northern Nicaragua and southern Honduras border.
On Oct. 27 at 16:00 UTC (12 p.m. EDT) the MODIS instrument aboard NASA’s Terra satellite captured a visible image of Tropical Storm Hanna straddling the border between Honduras and Nicaragua. The image, created by NASA’s MODIS Rapid Response Team at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, showed strong thunderstorms on both sides of the border, bringing heavy rainfall to those area.
At 10 a.m. EDT on Oct. 28, Roatan Airport in Guanaja, Honduras reported heavy rainfall with thunderstorms. At the same time, Islas Del Cisne, Honduras reported thunderstorms.
On Oct. 28, the National Hurricane Center noted that Hanna’s remnants continued to generate heavy rainfall and isolated thunderstorms over Honduras and northern Nicaragua as well as the Yucatan basin south of 20 north latitude and west of 80 west longitude.
The government of Honduras has discontinued the tropical storm warning for the coast of Honduras. There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect. The National Hurricane Center expects the remnants to dissipate by Oct. 28 at 8 p.m. EDT.
