Through the National Hurricane Center of the United States it was reported that Hurricane Eta is ‘extremely dangerous’ and registers powerful winds of 220 kilometers per hour, which will cause devastation in indigenous communities and affect more than 100,000 people who will be evacuated.

The eye of the category 4 hurricane Eta is located 35 kilometers from Puerto Cabeza, in the Caribbean of Nicaragua, moving west with a speed of 6 kilometers per hour, so that Nicaragua will be hit hard in the next few days even if its wind gusts decrease. .

According reportsHurricane Eta is expected to weaken as it enters Nicaragua, however it will be until Wednesday when it is considered a tropical storm again.

The Nicaraguan government has decreed alert and state of maximum alarm from the border with Honduras to Sandy Bay Sirpi, as reported by the EFE agency.

The storm surge that Hurricane Eta causes is expected to raise sea levels by 4 to 6 meters, as well as dangerous waves and strong winds.

The catastrophic winds and floods are the effects that Hurricane Eta will have on Nicaragua and part of Honduras, which will not be saved from the onslaught of the weather phenomenon.

The 2020 hurricane season has been one of the most incredible, as it is the first time that the name Eta is used in the storm system due to the number of phenomena presented in the Atlantic.

This year there are 28 tropical storms, of which 12 have become hurricanes.
