Marco Antonio Martinez Melgar, Atima, Santa Barbara, Honduras.
"with the hurricanes, Eta and Iota, a fault opened up under the ground, and we all suffered from it. Nearly all the houses here are destroyed, others are just badly damaged. We barely managed to get out and we are glad to have survived. We heard strange noises, rumbling underground, we didn't sleep for three nights, there was no electricity, we were here with torches and the walls were splitting, the ground was splitting, all the dogs were howling. It was hard to leave, to run away from your own houses, but in the end we were so afraid for our lives that we left. Some people here are so traumatised that they can't sleep still."
