BREAKING: Hurricane Eta barrels toward Central America as Category 4 storm

Posted: Tuesday, November 3, 2020. 1:34 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Hurricane Eta is expected to make landfall Tuesday afternoon as a catastrophic Category 4 storm in Nicaragua and Honduras while impacting most of Central America, ABC News reported.

The storm inches closer to the coast of northeastern Nicaragua with wind speeds of 145 mph. At 10 a.m. ET, it was about 30 miles southeast of Puerto Cabezas in Nicaragua.

Earlier in the day, the hurricane was close to Category 5 status with wind speeds topping 150 mph.

The National Weather Service warned of life-threatening storm surge, catastrophic winds, flash floods, and landslides across Central America. Nicaragua and Honduras could see rainfall up to 3 feet and a storm surge of 21 feet.

When Eta formed over the weekend, it tied the 2005 record for most named storms in a single Atlantic hurricane season at 28.

Eta and Hurricane Laura have been the strongest hurricanes of 2020.

Belize will see mostly rain in the center and south but could be in the storm’s path as it turns northward later this week.
