Hurricane Ita has gained momentum and is now a 160 mph category storm just a few hours from nearly the same part of Central America as Category 4 Hurricane Etah according to an advisory Monday morning from the National Hurricane Center Had killed two weeks earlier.
In 170 years of record keeping, Iota is the second Category 5 hurricane on record in the month of November. The last was the 1932 Cuban storm.
Although meteorologists insisted on ignoring the rarity of Iota’s strength for the month of November, it became clear that an imminent humanitarian disaster was likely to occur for Nicaragua and Honduras.
These places are also re-shining after Hurricane Etah landslide on November 3 as a Category 4 hurricane, causing loss of life and extreme destruction of property.
It is expected that Etawah will make a landslide on Monday night as a Category 5 hurricane off the Nicaragua coast.
The effects of Hurricane Iota will not only be life-threatening, but in many cases it is impossible for anyone without shelter.
Hurricanes are likely to rise up to 15–20 feet along the immediate coastline. Up to 30 inches of rain will cause fatal flash floods, landslides, landslides and river floods.
The winds will be destructive in some places with winds moving at speeds up to 200 mph.
Parts of this joint area can be uninhabitable for months if not months.
Over the weekend, Iota exploded into a powerful storm when it became the 10th tropical cyclone to undergo rapid incursions this season. It caught 40 mph in just 6 hours. The definition of sheer intensity is a 35 mph increase in 24 hours.
This is unprecedented for November. While paranormal, cruel and gut-wrenching are all terms that will be used anywhere for Category 5, the fact that it is in mid-November makes Iota’s development unique.
In fact, the second half of this record-shattering season had more strong storms. according to this Dr. Phil klotzbach, “The first 24 named hurricanes of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season produced 2 major hurricanes (Laura and Teddy). The last 6 named hurricanes have produced 4 major hurricanes (Delta, Epsilon, Eta and Iota).”
In other words, the worst of this season is followed by the months of August and September which is considered the peak season of the Atlantic hurricane season.
Again, there is nothing ordinary about this season named 30 Hurricanes, which broke the previous record of 28 hurricanes in 2005.
Iota reaching Category 5 status makes 2020 the fifth year in a Category 5 hurricane, a new record.
Climate change can be attributed to the production of high-intensity storms such as Iota (and Laura, Sally, and Eta), which strengthen up to landfall. Over time, warm water will not only cause strong storms, but those that remain later in the season.
