Caption: Hurricane Mitch. Coloured three-dimensional computer image, based on satellite data, of Hurricane Mitch (white cloud swirl, upper right). Mountainous areas of Central America (green) are brown. The hurricane is off the coast of Honduras (centre, mostly obscured). North is at top. The hurricane produced winds of over 200 miles per hour and heavy rain that caused flooding and land- slides. Over 11,000 people were killed and damage was estimated at 5 billion dollars. This image, based on data from an American GOES satellite, shows the hurricane at 13:15 on 26 October 1998, three days before it made landfall on Honduras.
