Tropical Storm Julia hammers Berlin

The rain started around 5 pm on October 10, 2022. The Berlin area was one of the hardest hit areas in El Salvador, receiving well over a foot of rain in just a few hours. As of Oct. 11 it is not possible to travel to ANY of the cantons that OSP works with. Besides roads becoming unpassable, houses were damaged, phone service, electricity and water were cut off, and crops were severely damaged.
