La Ceiba, Honduras, September 4, 2007—Residents ride through a flooded street after Hurricane Felix passed the coastal town.

Felix weakened into a tropical storm after making landfall in northern Nicaragua, and is now inundating neighboring Honduras. Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated in both countries following fears of flooding and mudslides.

Felix revived memories of 1998's Hurricane Mitch, which left more than 9,000 dead in Honduras.
