Saprissa and Marathón cancel match as storm ravages Honduras

October 17, 2008

The soccer game set for tonight between San José´s Deportivo Saprissa and Honduras´ Marathón has been postponed amid heavy rain, flooding and landslides in Honduras.

Some of the flooding has occurred near the northern city of San Pedro Sula, where the teams were scheduled to play.

The floods prompted President Manuel Zelaya to declare a national state of emergency. The storm has left at least 16 people dead and affected more than 120,000.

A new date has not yet been set.
