Update on tropical storm in Nicaragua – students are safe and sound

Dear Dragons friends and family,

Some of you may have seen reports of a tropical storm that has made land in Nicaragua and is currently moving up the coast of Central America.  We wanted to communicate that we have been in close contact with the instructors, and the group is safe and sound in the community of El Lagartillo.  They have seen heavy rain over the past few days, but no severe weather conditions.

Some coastal areas in northern Nicaragua experienced flooding and high winds over the past 24 hours, and the storm has now continued northward.  The area where the group is currently located, in the department of León in the Western highlands, was not in the direct path of the storm.  We will maintain close contact with the team, and post further updates if necessary.

Best wishes,

Julianne and the Dragons administration
