0 Просмотры
Hurricane Iota rapidly intensified to a powerful Category 4 overnight. Winds are up to 155 mph. Category 5 starts at 156 mph. It is expected to move west and could become a Category 5 hurricane before landfall tonight on Nicaragua. It will make landfall very near where Category 4 Eta did a few weeks ago. This will be just devastating for those areas that are still recovering. Iota is forecast to move west over the mountainous terrain and quickly weaken. It is expected to stay away from the Gulf as a ridge of high pressure builds over the water and this would keep it moving west into the Pacific as a remnant low.
