MANAGUA, Nicaragua (AP) - Nicaragua has started evacuating people from the path of Tropical Storm Matthew on the country's Caribbean coast.
The storm is threatening to drench a region that is prone to disastrous flooding.
Matthew is expected to hit land later today, and forecasters say it could bring 6 to 10 inches of rain to an already-soggy Nicaragua and Honduras -- with the possibility of flash floods and mudslides.
The WINK Skytracker Weather Team is following this storm closely. There is the possibility this storm could strengthen and enter the Gulf of Mexico next week. Trust WINK News for the very latest on this tropical storm.
