 I followed that storm as best I could from here, and I
don't think that the Huehuetenango region had any serious
flooding. Antigua, and Atitlan areas yes. Thousands killed,
100,000+ homeless. I was hearing reports of rain damage to
coffee in Chiapas even before Stan, and then they got
hammered big time. Lots of infrestructure damage, like
roads, bridges, warehouses, and more delicate varietals
like Caturra and Cataui had cherry and even branches
knocked off the trees. The UDEPOM coop is in an area that
had many mud slides. Oaxaca had road washouts galore, but
not much damage to the crop-so far. Anyone else have more
news on the subject? I know that Honduras, El Salvador and
Nicaragua had big problems from Stan...
