Life in the RAAN, Nicaragua after Hurricane Ida
Short clips showing some of the more difficult aspects of the RAAN. In the 3rd clip, all vehicles were halted the whole night as the front lorries in both directions had got stuck in the mud and it was impossible for any traffic to get past. It shows a coffin being carried by people to the other side at 3am in the morning - the poor man had been hit by a skidding bus whilst standing by a tree. Hurricane Ida hit the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua during this period - you will see in some clips that the Río Wawa ferry (people and vehicles) turned into a huge lake that could only be navigated in small boats.
