The hurricane gained force on Thursday afternoon and headed directly for the coast. The ensuing heavy rains led to floods and mudslides in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.

"We are all worried, people are scared because we all lost something with Mitch," said housewife Maria Esperanza in Guatemala's Puerto San Jose.
