Tropical Depression Eta expected to strengthen again into tropical storm - UPI.com

Tropical Depression Eta

Tropical Depression Eta is moving toward Cuba and the southeastern United States and is expected to grow into a tropical storm again on Friday.

The storm was a Category 4 hurricane when it arrived in Nicaragua on Wednesday, but weakened as it moved farther over land. Eta was producing heavy rain and life-threatening flooding in Honduras, Nicaragua and Belize.

In its noon CST update Friday, the National Hurricane Center said Eta was located about 95 miles east-northeast of Belize City, Belize, and 375 miles west-southwest of Grand Cayman. It had maximum sustained winds of 35 mph and was moving north-northeast at 6 mph.

Eta would again become a tropical storm once it reaches maximum sustained winds of 39 mph.

The storm is expected to strengthen into a tropical storm on Friday as it travels nearer to Cuba and the southeastern United States, where it could make landfall in Florida late this weekend or early next week...

  2. The death toll from the calamitous storm Eta in Central America leapt on Friday as the Guatemalan military reached a remote mountain village where torrential rains caused mudslides that killed an estimated 100 people.

    Many of the dead were buried in their homes in the remote village of Queja in the central region of Alta Verapaz, where around 150 houses were swallowed by mudslides, Guatemalan army spokesman Ruben Tellez said.

  3. Cuba’s meteorology office warned on Saturday of torrential rain and flooding as Tropical Depression Eta churned northwards towards the Caribbean island, and on track to Florida, after killing more than 70 people in Central America last week.

    Eta could strengthen back into a tropical storm over the warm Caribbean waters before making landfall on the southern coast of central Cuba overnight, the office said, warning of coastal flooding and winds of 80-100 km per hour.

    Flooding could be a problem more broadly, it said, given Cuba was already waterlogged in the wake of heavy rains of late and Eta could potentially dump more than 300mm of water on central and mountainous regions, Reuters reported.

  4. L'ouragan Eta a fait au moins 150 morts ou disparus au Guatemala, plus lourd bilan en Amérique centrale, avant de retrouver la mer des Caraïbes où, désormais affaibli en dépression tropicale, il devrait se renforcer pour menacer à partir de dimanche Cuba, la Jamaïque et la Floride.

    Au total, Eta a fait près de 200 morts ou disparus et des milliers de sinistrés dans sept pays d'Amérique centrale.

    Le village indigène de Queja, dans le nord du Guatemala, a été presque entièrement enseveli dans un glissement de terrain.
