Hurricane Eta has made landfall in Nicaragua, pounding an impoverished region of its Caribbean coast.
It is expected to be one of the strongest hurricanes to hit the area in years.
Authorities have moved thousands of people from outer islands and low-lying areas.
The storm is forecast to move across Central America for days, bringing heavy rain and dangerous winds.
