Tropical Storm Eta made landfall on the coast of Nicaragua on Tuesday as a Category 4 hurricane, and after weakening and re-strengthening, is now heading through Cuba and up to South Florida. 

The countries of Nicaragua, Honduras and other Caribbean islands saw downpours and high winds throughout the week and weekend from the storm. 

Hurricane Eta destroyed many homes, roads and infrastructures as it barreled through, stated the Wall Street Journal. 

The Weather Channel expects the tropical storm to strengthen as it moves north over the weekend and into Monday. It’ll cross Cuba and the Bahamas before it reaches the southern tip of Florida early next week. 

Hurricane watches and warnings have already been issued for a few Florida cities and beaches including the coast of southern Florida, From Deerfield Beach to Bonita Beach and the Florida Keys, according to The Weather Channel

Eta has produced speeds up to 60 MPH, and these winds can reach up to 80-miles from the storm’s center, states CNN.

The National Hurricane Storm Twitter page has been updating the public about the storm’s movements and what people can expect. 

Jim Cantore has been on top of Eta and giving updates on his Twitter page as well. 

Those all over the coast of Florida are said to be aware of what’s to come and be prepared for high wind speeds, flooding and storm surges.
