Honduras-Costa Rica qualifier postponed a day by storm

Friday's CONCACAF World Cup qualifying match between Costa Rica and Honduras has been postponed until Saturday due to severe rainfall caused by tropical storm Nate, the Costa Rican soccer federation has announced. "Still developing their game so they are bound to commit mistakes", said Costa Rica coach Breansse Camacho, who saw his team concede both the goals through a mistake committed by his defenders.

A Tico Times reported that the BeachSide Clinic in Villareal, Guanacaste, is asking for donations of alcohol gel, water, rubbing alcohol and medications, as well as personal hygiene articles, mattresses, blankets and clothes for the more than 90 people in shelters there. She said another seven people were missing.

In Nicaragua, many bridges have been damanged as a result of the storm.

Nicaragua bore 11 of the deaths, according to its vice president, Rosario Murillo. "It's better to be late than not to get there at all".

Nate's forecast track had shifted slightly by late Thursday morning, putting New Orleans - and its compromised drainage system - directly in the storm's sights.

According to the National Hurricane Center, Tropical Storm Nate, which is expected to hit U.S. Gulf Coast, could cause three to six inches of rain.
