Tropical storm Eta
Tropical storm Eta formed overnight, strengthened throughout Sunday and is now moving toward Nicaragua according to the latest forecast Sunday evening. The storm center is about 200 miles east of the Nicaraguan coast. It is generating sustained winds of up to 70 mph, forecasters said, and is moving west at 13 mph. Tropical storm Eta will continue to strengthen over the next 36 hours and will likely reach hurricane strength Sunday night. Hurricane warnings have been issued for parts of Honduras and Nicaragua. Eta is the 28th named storm of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season meaning that 2020 has tied 2005 for the most named storms in a single hurricane season. Scientists have long warned that increasing ocean temperatures and other effects of climate change have caused the rise of dangerous storms.
