Hurricane Mitch grew into one of the strongest Atlantic storms recorded, threatening the east coast of Central America with sustained winds reaching 180 mph, forecasters said. The Category 5 storm remained at least three days from landfall as it edged west-northwest at 8 mph north of Honduras in the Caribbean Sea, the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said. One death was reported from flooding in Panama.

Amid fears that the death count from tropical storm Mitch could exceed 7,000, Central Americans on Monday began digging their way out of the worst natural disaster to hit their countries in more than two decades. Rescue operations continued in Honduras and elsewhere for people stranded on rooftops and in trees when torrential rains from Mitch knocked out bridges, covered highways and flooded valleys with muddy water.

Guatemala and El Salvador were under states of alert Monday as Tropical Storm Miriam whirled offshore, and other Latin American countries devastated by the storm worked to aid victims. Hurricane Joan left at least 98 people dead in five countries during the past week and plowed across Nicaragua from the Caribbean Sea to the Pacific Ocean before it was downgraded to a tropical storm and renamed Miriam.

The Roman media circus has begun. No one has been trampled by horses yet, but try to stay clear of the legions of journalists storming the Eternal City: a horde of frantic, overworked, sleep-deprived "pilgrims" immersed in a feeding frenzy of historic proportions. It has been years in the making. When the health of Pope John Paul II declined in the mid-1990s, major television networks began angling for roofs and terraces with commanding views of the Vatican.

What happened here this week, in a mint-green room on the second floor of a crumbling apartment building in the once-luxurious Miramar neighborhood, should not be called a collaboration.
