Eta Is Stronger In the Western Caribbean Sea

The Weather Authority

Something we are used to….another hurricane. Eta strengthened into a hurricane Monday morning at 3am central time. Winds are at 110 mph (Category 2) in the western Caribbean Sea.

The official track takes the system into Nicaragua and Honduras later this week. Let’s hope the system gets eaten up over central America before it has a chance to turn north. Some models have Eta turned north toward the Yucatan Peninsula.
