Hurricane Felix devaste some parts of California

(AP) – Felix walloped Central America’s remote Miskito coastline and Henriette slammed into resorts on the tip of Baja California as a record-setting hurricane season got even wilder Tuesday with twin storms making landfall on the same day.Felix roared ashore before dawn as a Category 5 storm along Nicaragua’s remote northeast corner _ an isolated, swampy jungle where people get around mainly by canoe.

The storm’s 160 mph winds slammed the city of Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua, peeling roofs off shelters and a police station, knocking down electric poles and destroying or damaging some 5,000 homes, according to Lt. Col. Samuel Perez, Nicaragua’s deputy head of civil defense.

Perez said at least three people died: a man drowned when his boat capsized, a woman was killed when a tree fell on her house and a baby died after the storm made it impossible for her to receive medical attention.
