The governments of the Central American republics of Honduras and Nicaragua have also declared a state of national emergency due to the heavy rains that have caused severe flooding. 
 
In Honduras, more than 69,000 people were displaced and the majority of the damage was done in the southern departments of Choluteca and Valle. In Nicaragua, floods have affected more than 133,000 people.
 
Catholic Relief Services, a charitable agency of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops that cooperates with Caritas - the worldwide charitable agency of the Catholic Church - is distributing pre-positioned emergency kits in affected areas.
