Colombia saw the storm first, with parts of the country left underwater. President Ivan Duque said later Monday that 98 per cent of the infrastructure on the Island of of Providencia was left ruined. By the time the storm reached Nicaragua, the storm had been downgraded to a Category 4, but with winds close to 250 kilometres-per-hour, the storm caused flash floods with many people having fled to shelters.
