A powerful earthquake toppled dozens of homes in Honduras and Belize early Thursday, killing at least six people and injuring 40 as terrified residents spilled from their homes across much of Central America. The magnitude-7.1 quake struck at 2:24 a.m. (0824 GMT) off the Caribbean coast of Honduras, 130 kilometers northeast of the beach town of La Ceiba, according to the US Geological Survey in Golden, Colorado.
