A radiothon fundraiser for victims of flooding in Central America from Hurricane Stan will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. today. The death toll associated with the storm is more than 250.

The radiothon will be broadcast on WBPS-FM (94.3).

The event is supported by the Consulate General of El Salvador in Washington. Other sponsors include Comunidades Unidas Salvadorenas (CUS) and Centro de Recursos para Centroamericanos.

"There is a lot of logistic work that has to be done in order to make this fundraising campaign a success," said Francisco Castro, a CUS spokesman.
