Hurricane Eta brought torrential rain and high winds to Nicaragua as it made landfall in the Central American nation on Tuesday, APA reports citing BBC.

Two men were killed in when landslide buried the mine they were working in in Bonanza, on Nicaragua's north coast.

In neighbouring Honduras, a 13-year-old girl died in the city of San Pedro Sula when the wall of her home collapsed onto the bed where she was sleeping.

Eta has since been downgraded to a tropical storm.

It first hit Nicaragua as a Category Four hurricane with winds of 140mph (225km/h) and torrential rains.
