Nicaragua to Evacuate Thousands as Hurricane Otto Approaches

Nicaragua has started a mass evacuation of people as hurricane Otto is about to make landfall, the country’s authorities have announced.

According to Rosario Murillo, Coordinator of the Council of Communication and Citizenry (CCC), at least 7,000 people living in the most vulnerable neighborhoods in Nicaragua’s Bluefields will be evacuated. Over 3,000 will be evacuated in other regions of the country.

"We have begun the process of evacuation of all communities that are at risk," Guillermo Gonzalez, executive co-director of the National System of Prevention, Relieves and Attention to Disasters (SINAPRED) said as quoted by El Carabobeno on Wednesday.

Tropical storm Otto strengthened to become the seventh hurricane of the 2016 Atlantic hurricane season earlier this week. It then weakened, but became a hurricane again on Wednesday evening, according to the US National Hurricane Center.

Otto is expected to make landfall on the coast of Nicaragua on Thursday morning.
