Black-and-white vertical photograph of the Comayagua Valley in central Honduras, in the vicinity of La Paz and Villa de San Antonio. The west side of Villa de San Antonio was flooded. Large quantities of sediment were deposited in the town, and along the banks and on the floodplain of the Rio Tepanguaro and the other large rivers in the area.
Black-and-white vertical photograph of the coastal wetlands along the northeastern side of the Gulf of Fonseca, near San Lorenzo, Honduras. The wetlands were flooded during the height of the storm and experienced significant changes in salinity. Large quantities of sediment were deposited in the diked shrimp farm ponds, on the floodplains of the Rio Nacaome, and on other coastal-plain river and estuary channels throughout the area of the photograph.
