Description


Activation time (UTC): 2020-11-17 14:23:00
Event time (UTC): 2020-11-17 00:00:00
Event type: Flood (Riverine flood)

Activation reason:
Hurricane Iota is an extremely strong hurricane bringing very high levels of rainfalls to Honduras, Nicaragua and Guatemala. The risk of flooding is extremely high and many 20yr + returns are to be expected as soil is already saturated by the passage of a previous hurricane (Eta) less than two weeks ago. The service was requested to produce First Estimate Products (FEPs) and Delineation Products (DELs).
