Hurricane Adrian approaches El Salvador

At 10 PM Eastern time on Thursday night, Hurricane Adrian was 35 miles from the Salvadoran coast according to this AP story. More than 10,000 people have been evacuated from low lying areas. There has only been one tropical depression to strike El Salvador from the Pacific ocean since 1966. The biggest risk will be flooding and mudslides from the rains brought by the storm.
