Storms brew in Central America

Storms continue to ravage both coasts of Central America, the AP reports. Last week, Tropical Storm Alma swept through the Pacific coast, making it the first such storm in recent history on the eastern side of Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Costa Rica.

Near-hurricane like weather has continued throughout early June in Belize and Honduras, which has resulted in major flooding further inland and the death of at least nine people.
