November 9, 2020 - Tropical Storm Eta is forecast to restrengthen into a hurricane as it moves back over the Gulf of Mexico after slamming the Florida Keys and Cuba. The Category 4 storm roared through Central America last week, leaving a path of destruction. The storm was expected to approach the west-central coast Wednesday evening and rapidly weaken as it moves inland over the northern portion of the Florida peninsula Thursday. The heaviest rains were concentrated along the nation's Pacific coast, especially in Guanacaste Province. Hurricane Eta began affecting north-eastern Nicaragua and parts of northern Honduras in the early hours of 3 November, causing heavy rains and high winds as a Category 4 hurricane.  The system turned further east and made landfall near Cedar Key, Florida at 09:00 UTC on November 12, with sustained winds of 50 mph (85 km/h). A total of 107 communities experienced power outages. , Hurricane Eta had disastrous effects on Honduras, largely due to catastrophic flooding.  Residents in low-lying areas of San Ignacio had to be evacuated from their homes. The storm now appears headed for landfall in west Florida by Thursday. Tropical Storm Eta was moving west-southwest over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico and maintaining 50-mph winds, according to the 4 p.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center.  In Brickell, recently installed storm water pumps to deal with tidal flooding and storms helped clear the flood water from the rain and high tide event. With up to 155-mph winds, Hurricane Iota smashed record books on Nov. 16 as the strongest hurricane ever recorded to make landfall in Nicaragua.
