Three dead as Hurricane Bonnie passes over Central America

At least three people have been killed as a hurricane tore through Central America before moving towards Mexico.

Tropical Storm Bonnie was upgraded to a category one hurricane on Sunday, as one person in El Salvador and two others in Nicaragua were killed in the path of destruction it caused.

The storm had developed in the Atlantic Ocean and moved across a narrow portion of Central America into the Pacific Ocean as a tropical storm, a rare occurrence in the storm-prone area.

Bonnie had maximum sustained winds of 125 kilometres (80 miles) per hour “with higher gusts”, according to the US National Hurricane Center, as it moved towards Mexico.
