Zeta to strengthen before making landfall Wednesday along the coast of Louisiana and Mississippi
UPDATE — October 27, 2020
Tropical Storm Zeta continues to move through the Gulf of Mexico after making landfall in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula as a hurricane. Experts predict Zeta will strengthen to a hurricane again before making landfall along the Gulf Coast. Strong winds, rain and storm surge are expected with this storm, and residents have been advised to evacuate.
A hurricane warning extends from Morgan City, Louisiana, to the Mississippi/Alabama border, including Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Maurepas and metropolitan New Orleans. Hurricane conditions (winds 74 mph or greater) are expected to arrive in parts of the hurricane warning area later Wednesday. Hurricane Zeta is the Atlantic's 11th hurricane of the season.

ORIGINAL UPDATE — October 26, 2020
Hurricane Zeta is currently crossing over the Caribbean as it makes its way to the Gulf Coast. Experts predict Zeta will continue to strengthen today and that it will track similar to Hurricane Delta, striking Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula before heading north through the Gulf of Mexico. A hurricane warning is in effect for Tulum to Dzilam, including Cozumel and Cancun, with strong wind and heavy rainfall expected in these areas beginning Monday night and into early Tuesday. Zeta is expected to make landfall along the northwestern Gulf Coast on Wednesday evening. As of right now, 75 mph winds and three to four inches of rainfall are anticipated.
