Hurricane Zeta Strengthens and Takes Aim at New Orleans

HeadlineOct 28, 2020

In the Gulf of Mexico, Tropical Storm Zeta has strengthened back into a hurricane ahead of its expected landfall south of New Orleans as a Category 2 storm this afternoon. Officials along Louisiana’s Gulf Coast are warning of flooding and life-threatening storm surges. On Tuesday, Zeta struck Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, which was still recovering from Hurricane Delta’s landfall just three weeks ago. Zeta is the 27th named storm of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season, which is on pace to break all records.
