Tropical storm Zeta increases the force of its winds towards Yucatan
At 05:00 am EDT (21:00 GMT), the center of Zeta was located 490 kilometers south-southeast of the westernmost tip of Cuba, and 480 kilometers southeast of the island of Cozumel.
At that same time it was “almost stationary” in the middle of the sea, according to the most recent bulletin from the US National Hurricane Center (MHC).
The Mexican government issued a hurricane warning for the Yucatan Peninsula, from Tulum to Rio Lagartos, including Cozumel, according to the Miami-based observatory.
A tropical storm warning is also in effect for the Cuban province of Pinar del Río.
According to the scheduled trajectory, the center of Zeta will pass south of western Cuba early Monday, and will move near or over the north of the Yucatan Peninsula or the Yucatan Channel late on Monday.
On Tuesday it will move into the waters of the southern Gulf of Mexico, and that same day it can reach the central Gulf of Mexico, the NHC said.
Zeta is the 28th storm this year in the Atlantic and, if it became a hurricane, it would be the 11th of this active season.
Zeta’s current trajectory, which according to the observatory’s graph could include the southern United States as of Wednesday of next week, is similar to that of other systems that traversed the area this month.
Tropical Storm Gamma strengthened on October 4 after leaving Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and entering the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and the Category 2 hurricane Delta made landfall a few days later near Puerto Morelos, Mexico, to continue its course. toward the southern coast of the United States, where it made landfall again in Louisiana.
Zeta will leave abundant rains in central and western Cuba, the Cayman Islands, Jamaica, the northeast of the Yucatan Peninsula (Mexico) and the south and the Florida Keys, according to the NHC.
On the other hand, Hurricane Epsilon, which continues to move through colder waters in the North Atlantic, degraded this afternoon into a post-tropical cyclone.
This system has not made landfall, although last Wednesday it became a “major hurricane” near the Bermuda Islands.
Epsilon carries sustained winds of 110 kilometers per hour and at 21:00 GMT its center was located 675 kilometers east of Cape Race, on the Canadian island of Newfoundland.
With Epsilon, there have been ten hurricanes formed this season, of which the largest was Laura, which made landfall in Louisiana at the end of August and caused at least 77 deaths and damages for 14,100 million dollars throughout its journey.
