High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Tropical Storm Aletta was a weak but destructive tropical storm that killed 308 people while meandering off the coast of Central America. An area of disturbed weather developed into a tropical depression on May 20, and into a tropical storm around noon on May 21. The cyclone turned northeast, reaching its peak as a strong tropical storm on May 23. Aletta meandered and gradually weakened. Tropical Depression Aletta dissipated on May 29, a modest distance southwest of Acapulco. Moisture from the tropical system spread over Honduras and Nicaragua, causing flooding. Throughout the two countries, 308 people were killed and total damage was at $457 million (1982 USD). In the aftermath of the storm, many programs provided relief to the victims of Aletta.
