Forget About Zeta, Here Comes Eta!

[www.nhc.noaa.gov]

Currently only a tropical storm, and so just has a numerical designation (Tropical Depression 29). But models, with near certainty, expect it to become a tropical storm, and most likely a hurricane, with an eventual turn north, towards possibly Jamaica and Cuba, then the southern U.S.

Why does none of this surprise me? Come on 2020! And I believe we still have a month to go in hurricane season. And this storm ties 2005 for the most number of storms in a season (actually in 2005 the last storm came out of season, in January of all things). This season seems like it will break that record my far.

Ummm, I think we've got you beat on that one...

And watching Eta, but it looks like Honduras will take the brunt of the hit for us.

Seems to have intensified into a tropical storm and is officially now Eta.

This one looks like a rain event, which is the worst type of storm in that region. It can cause flooding and mudslides that inevitably causes deaths. When Mitch stalled over the region in 98, the death toll was about 10,000. I was there for that one and it was horrible. At one point I was literally walking on corpses from a mudslide in Nicaragua.

The tack on Eta takes it about 30 miles from my family's home in Danli.

My electricity just went out for the third time from Zeta.

Here in northwestern SC, we rarely get much in the way of the effects from hurricanes.
This one has been a bugger, though.

A friend had eight 70+ft trees fall on his property. Two fell on his house, one on his truck, and one on his shed. He's been without electricity for a few days, as have my other friends in that neck of the woods.

Gotta sign off - phone's down to 30%.

Gosh, that’s a slow mover. Ombligo is so right, the rains will make this a terrible tragedy.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
