Nicaraguans Survey Hurricane’s Wreckage - New York Times: "TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras, Sept. 5 — Hurricane Felix spared much of Central America, but residents of the poor coastal communities of Nicaragua, where the storm struck land at full force, picked through the wreckage of their wooden huts on Wednesday and lamented losing the little they had. The Nicaraguan government’s estimates of the death toll varied Wednesday, with one official saying at least 18 people had died since the storm hit Tuesday and another saying the figure was at least 38, according to wire services. Scores more were missing, the wire services said."

Local voices from Katrina relief missions- al.com: "Here are some excerpts from recent reports received at The Huntsville Times from people who have worked or lived in the coastal areas affected by the 2005 hurricanes: St. Stephen's members first became involved in Katrina relief efforts at the processing center at First Baptist Church. We also worked in a coalition of area Episcopal churches to send supplies to Camp Coast Care in Long Beach, Miss., which is operated by Lutheran Episcopal Services."
