Hurricane Eta

Well we thought for a few days we were going to get the FULL Florida experience!!! Luckily, by the time it got to us it was only a Tropical Storm. It hit us about 3:00am on Thursday. Pretty exciting.

Hurricane Eta was a deadly, erratic, long-lived, and powerful Category 4 hurricane that killed at least 159 people and became the second-most intense November Atlantic hurricane on record, only behind the 1932 Cuba hurricane. The record-tying twenty-eighth named storm, twelfth hurricane, fifth major hurricane, and most powerful tropical cyclone of the extremely active 2020 Atlantic hurricane season, Eta originated from a vigorous tropical wave in the eastern Caribbean Sea that developed into a tropical depression late on October 31.

Heavy rainfall and tropical-storm force winds were recorded across all of the Florida Keys, South Florida and the southern half of Central Florida, bringing widespread flooding. Eta’s second approach and landfall brought storm surge and gusty winds to the west coast of Central Florida and supplemental rainfall to northern Florida.
