By BBN Staff: Hurricane Delta made history when it hit the United States this weekend as the 25th named storm of the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane season, and while Delta has weakened to a post-tropical cyclone, weather experts say it could still bring flooding and even tornadoes to some states still in its path.
An article published by USA Today noted Hurricane Delta could also be the USA’s record-breaking 17th weather disaster of 2020
Delta made landfall as a Category 2 hurricane on Friday night, bringing with it 100 miles per hour winds and rainfall of up to 17 inches in areas such as southwest Louisiana. In the aftermath of the storm, more than 615,000 homes and businesses along the Gulf Coast are without power while a tornado watch is in effect for eastern Alabama and west-central Georgia until 9 p.m. eastern time.
USA Today quoted AccuWeather senior meteorologist Mike Doll describing the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane season as “historic.” Doll also said that weather conditions could offer some reprieve from storm activity in the upcoming weeks and that late seasons storms are possible but were historically rare.
Lousiana was still going in the recovery process from Hurricane Laura which had hit just six weeks prior to Delta.
