The death toll from the floods that struck Nicaragua increased to seven, Central American vice president Rosario Murillo said Friday.
Earlier, five dead and two missing persons were reported. The number of missing persons also increased by one person, the Prensa portal notes.
The cause of the tragedy was the impact of the tropical cyclone “Selma”, located in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Nicaragua. Now the cyclone is moving towards El Salvador. However, the forecasts of the weather forecasters are disappointing – the rains in Nicaragua will last until Saturday.
