2020 Hurricanes – UCC Disaster Ministries Responds
2020 is acting according to predictions that it would be a particularly heavy hurricane season. There have been so many named storms this year that meteorologists have exhausted the Roman alphabet and begun using the Greek alphabet to name storms for only the second time in history. The previous time was 2005. And Hurricane Season is far from over: It runs until November 30.
Here’s the latest: During the first days of November, Hurricane Eta brought catastrophic damage to Nicaragua and Honduras’s Atlantic coast with heavy rain, winds triggering inland flooding, and landslides. The joint Global Ministries of the United Church of Christ/Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Latin America and Caribbean Office has made an initial contribution toward immediate relief needs.
Eta also has been attacking the Caribbean and Florida, possibly heading next to the U.S. Gulf Coast.
