Hurricane Eta near category 5 strength, “catastrophic” damage possible to Nicaragua

The latest update by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) as of 5 AM on Tuesday listed the storm 25 miles southeast of Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua, moving west-southwest at 5 mph. Eta’s hurricane-force winds are reaching 125 miles per hour and extend outward some 25 miles from its center, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Category 4 Hurricane Eta continues to strengthen toward a Category 5 as it moves towards Nicaragua, where forecasters are concerned that the storm could bring catastrophic damage.

The current prediction model by the NHC shows the storm making landfall on Tuesday in Nicaragua, moving into Honduras on Wednesday, Guatemala on Thursday, then turning east toward Belize on Saturday and doing a nearly 130 degree turn back out to sea by Sunday moving toward Cuba and Jamaica.
