Iota ripped off the roof of a makeshift hospital and toppled electricity poles as it made landfall late on Monday in Nicaragua. The Category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds of 155 miles per hour hit the coast some 15 miles south of where Hurricane Eta touched down on Nov. 3. Authorities evacuated about 40,000 people to shelters ahead of the storm, while Honduras moved about 80,000 people to safety.
