Anybody have any idea what a Cat 4 140+ winds in Nicaragua will do to our hobby?

Being concerned about injuries and deaths goes without saying. But since tobacco horticulture and production has become such a large source of income for many working class and lower income Nicaraguans having crops destroyed and barns and curing facilities damaged will impact them financially. Maybe for years. Not to mention transportation and food resources.

They had a lot of damage but they also got lucky in some ways and it turned into a tropical storm thankfully. When I went to Nicaragua the cigar industry seemed to be the higher paying industry and I was very surprised how well of they did especially in Esteli.

Here they go again another projected Cat 4 expected landfall the Honduran Nicaraguan boarder. This has been one hell of a hurricane season.
