Hurricane Felix peters out

After coming ashore in Nicaragua as a Category 5 hurricane on Tuesday morning, Hurricane Felix rapidly lost strength until now it is only a tropical depression. El Salvador maintains a cautionary orange alert today and schools are closed across the country. The open question is how much rain will the weather patterns created by Felix bring. There were no reports of major problems caused by the rains overnight. You can see a current satellite image of El Salvador's weather at this link.
