Will coffee prices rise after back-to-back hurricanes hit Central America?
Central America is bracing for yet another potential hurricane less than two weeks after Hurricane Eta devastated the region. And the latest threat could impact a cash crop that is grown and exported around the globe.
Eta struck Nicaragua on Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020, as a 5 on the AccuWeather RealImpactT Scale for Hurricanes, the highest rating on the scale, which takes into account factors including wind speed, flooding rain, storm surge and economic damage and loss. The deadly storm will have a long-lasting impact on the region after displacing more than a million people and leaving infrastructure in shambles.
