There is a tropical storm that is on the coast of Honduras right now. San Pedro Sula is on the Atlantic side, and we are really feeling the storm. It has not stopped raining since last night, and it is raining hard. All of the streets are flooded because of the intensity of the rain. I took a picture of the soccer field to show you how flooded it has gotten in less than 24 hours. We've been told to expect this kind of rain for the next 3 days. If the streets are too bad by the morning we'll cancel school. The school can only cancelled by the minister of education, which is the person in charged of the education system in all of Honduras. Schools aren't cancelled one by one, its either all or nothing. However, they can cancel just the public schools and keep the private schools in class. During storms like these, the public schools are used as refuges for the homeless and the extremely poor people who lose their houses when the rain comes.
