My prayers are with all the families, friends and businesses in every area of every land-falling tropical storm and hurricane this whole year!

I am wishing a prayer for each of the landfall tropical systems that have plagued the Atlantic region this whole year. Tropical Storm Eta is exiting the U.S. over the Atlantic near the Georgia-South Carolina border, moving eastbound, after a path of mid to upper Florida, Broward County, the Florida Keys, Cuba, Honduras and Nicaragua. There are no other watches in effect currently for Eta. Theta formed and moved east way in the central Atlantic approaching no land masses at the time. I am wishing everyone much luck in a fast and successful assessment to damages and re-build, in all areas–every storm this year. A lot of people had to put off a re-build due to another storm coming in again. I will keep you posted and informed at the beginning stage of any future activity, if it forms. A collage photo of Theta on .GIF to follow as soon as it is complete. I will also feature a special .GIF collage of the whole season when I am absolutely sure it is over…

Atlantic Tropical Report: The Atlantic season for the year 2020 is the year in the record books–thereby being the single most intense year on records of ALL types. Iota may be next!

๐ŸŒ€๐ŸŒ€๐ŸŒ€๐ŸŒ€๐ŸŒ€๐ŸŒ€๐ŸŒ€๐ŸŒ€
Eta: Check out for your local listings here: Nationwide Station Listing Using Broadcast Frequencies. No further watches or warnings are issued, only advisories. Still do not venture out into flooded waters where you cannot see the bottom of the water, due to the fact that sharp objects can be floating or worse yet, missing manhole covers. Iโ€™m wishing a quick recovery and re-build. Current and all future reports will be as usual posting at the NOAA NWS National Hurricane Center:

…CENTER OF ETA EXPECTED TO PASS JUST OFFSHORE OF THE COAST OF SOUTH AND NORTH CAROLINA THROUGH FRIDAY MORNING…

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

At 4 p.m. EST, the center of Tropical Storm Eta was located over the Atantic Ocean about 90 miles (150 km) south-southwest of Charleston, South Carolina. Eta is moving toward the northeast near 18 mph (30 km/h). A faster north-northeastward to northeastward motion is expected over the next couple of days. On the forecast track, Eta is expected to accelerate over the western Atlantic and move parallel to, but offshore of, the Carolinas tonight and early Friday before heading well east of the Mid-Atlantic coast by late Friday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km) from the center. Little change in strength is forecast through early Friday. Eta could re-intensify as a non-tropical cyclone late Friday or Friday night before becoming absorbed by a larger non-tropical cyclone on Saturday.

Eta will produce an additional 1 to 2 inches of rain across portions of the southeastern Florida Peninsula through early tonight, with isolated maximum storm total accumulations of 20 to 25 inches in South Florida.

Localized flash and urban flooding will be possible across the Florida Peninsula today, especially across previously inundated areas. Minor river flooding is expected across portions of West Florida lasting into the weekend.

Deep-layer moisture that has spread northward along a frontal boundary across the Carolinas is producing heavy rainfall along with flash and significant river flooding that is not directly associated with Eta. See products from the NOAA Weather Prediction Center – www.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov – and your local National Weather Service office – www.weather.gov – for additional information.

The next complete advisory will be issued by NHC at 10 p.m. EST – www.hurricanes.gov

Other Tropical Systems: Theta, which still poses no impact on any land area at the present, although made the record breaking 2020 season complete. A tropical disturbance is at over 50% chance to becoming Iota. Visit https://www.weather.gov/wrn/hurricane-preparedness.

La Niรฑa is officially declared as the cause of such the active record breaking hurricane season this year, with names at letter “H” in the Greek alphabet. The Atlantic season has broke every record in the books, considering it started off so quietly and with dust plumes in June and July. Check out the Wikipedia caption: Atlantic hurricane season
