HOUSTON – Iota was the 30th named storm and the 13th hurricane in this record-setting 2020 Atlantic hurricane season. Iota was also the strongest hurricane of the 2020 season slamming Nicaragua just 2 weeks after Cat. 4 Hurricane Eta decimated the same area. What is left of Iota is still producing rain over Central America but the focus now switches to the long road to recovery for Honduras and Nicaragua, both hard hit by Eta and Iota.
The calendar might say mid November and hurricane season does end November 30th but the tropics are still busy. The National Hurricane Center is tracking 2 hot spots that could lead to more tropical trouble. Neither spot would threat the U.S. but they could be a concern for hard hit Central America.
