BUENA VISTA, HONDURAS – In late 2020, two hurricanes tore through Honduras with deadly force. The storms caused great need for hurricane victim relief. Hurricane Eta and Hurricane Iota struck within a month and a half of each other. Brutal winds and damaging flooding changed lives forever. Because the hurricanes were so close, the community of Buena Vista suffered immense damage. Maria Paz, a resident of Buena Vista, spoke to Operation Blessing staff about her experience. She told us that her neighborhood was the most damaged in the area. “They called me to tell me that I had to leave the house, all the people had already evacuated their houses.” said Maria. Maria’s neighbors were worried about her, since she was the only one who didn’t immediately evacuate.
Thankfully, Maria survived the hurricanes. However, her home and community were left ravaged. Maria has no way to access her home at the moment, because the hurricanes washed so much away. The landslides buried many houses in Buena Vista. Maria and her neighbors were left without hope.
