Why was a plane not sent? Is it just because it did not hit AMERICAN soil?

Could had been that it was in a NO FLY zone. There are some places down there that the plane is not allowed into. I saw this once this year when one was in the Carrebbial and they were in St. Croix and could not fly into it until it got closer. Just IMO

Retired from ASA now for some real flying

The main thing is proximity; Nicaragua isn't exactly close compared to, say, the northwestern Yucatan. This usually means only one flight a day, unless the system shows signs of being a monster.
